AMITYVILLE, N.Y. – Hi-Tech Pharmacal Co. has been cleared to market gabapentin oral solution, a treatment for epilepsy and postherpetic neuralgia.

The specialty pharmaceuticals company said Tuesday that the Food and Drug Administration granted final approval for its abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) for gabapentin oral solution 250mg/5mL, the generic version of Pfizer’s Neurontin oral solution.
