CORONA, Calif., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: WPI), a leading specialty pharmaceutical company, announced today that it has received final approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for glipizide extended-release tablets in the 10 mg strength.

Glipizide extended-release is the generic equivalent of Pfizer Inc.'s Glucotrol XL(R) and is indicated as an adjunct to diet for the control of hyperglycemia and its associated symptomatology in patients with type 2 diabetes after an adequate trial of dietary therapy has proved unsatisfactory.
