Date:3/5/2008

MONTVALE, N.J., March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Barr Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: BRL) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Duramed Pharmaceuticals, Inc., has filed suit against Watson Pharmaceuticals (NYSE: WPI) and its subsidiary, Watson Laboratories, Inc., for infringement of the patent protecting Duramed's SEASONIQUE(R) extended-cycle oral contraceptive product.
