MORRISTOWN, N.J., July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Actavis Group, the international generic pharmaceuticals company, today announced that it has received approval from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to market Bupropion HCl Extended-Release (SR) tablets 100mg and 200mg.  Distribution of the product will commence immediately.
