AstraZeneca Announces TOPROL-XL(R) (Metoprolol Succinate) is Now Available
Date:5/18/2009

WILMINGTON, Del., May 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) announced today that all wholesale ordering restrictions in place for TOPROL-XL(R) (metoprolol succinate) extended release tablets have been removed and that supply levels of TOPROL-XL are approaching near usual levels at all points in the distribution chain.

AstraZeneca has been diligently working to help ensure adequate market supply of TOPROL-XL and the authorized generic metoprolol succinate following published reports that two generic companies had recalled or suspended shipments of metoprolol succinate in late 2008 and early 2009.

"After the two generic manufacturers stopped supplying the market, it was critical that we quickly boost our production to increase the supply available for patients," said Kathy Monday, Vice President at AstraZeneca.

To help ensure equitable distribution of TOPROL-XL, AstraZeneca had initially instituted a short-term order management system to wholesalers. That system has now been lifted as AstraZeneca is now manufacturing and distributing enough TOPROL-XL and authorized generic metoprolol succinate to meet historical demand levels. The authorized generic is distributed and marketed by Par Pharmaceutical.

"TOPROL-XL and metoprolol succinate should now be available for patients in all regions across the country," said Monday.

AstraZeneca has been manufacturing TOPROL-XL for the US market since 1992 and is making significant investments in order to help ensure that supply is available to meet the needs of patients in the US, while not impacting supply available to patients in the rest of the world.

TOPROL-XL and metoprolol succinate patients should always consult with their health care professional if they have concerns about their medication. Pati
