Who Makes Rescula?

Adults who have ocular hypertension (high pressure in the eye) or open angle glaucoma may receive treatment with a medication called Rescula® (unoprostone ophthalmic solution). This prescription eye solution is typically used in the affected eye twice daily.
 
Who manufactures this product? Rescula is made by Sucampo Pharma Americas, LLC. This medicine is currently protected by several patents that prevent a generic version from being manufactured in the United States.
 
The first patent for Rescula expired in July 2012. However, Rescula is protected by other patents that do not expire until 2018 and 2021. Once Rescula goes off-patent, there may be several companies that manufacture a generic version of the drug.
