Several potential blockbuster drugs are expected to lose patent protection during the forecast period.

Patent for Viibryd, manufactured by Allergan Plc is expected to expire in 2019. Major manufacturers receive approval of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for commercialization of several antidepressant drugs. For instance, Levomilnacipran received the U.S. FDA approval in 2013, under brand name Fetzima by Forest Laboratories, Inc. Allergan Plc. and its partner Gedeon Richter Plc. received FDA approval for Vraylar (cariprazine) for treatment of manic or mixed episodes of bipolar I disorder and schizophrenia among adults.

The approved product is a generic equivalent of the branded product, Seroquel XR. Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Ltd. renamed its drug Brintellix (vortioxetine) to Trintellix (vortioxetine), in order to avoid misunderstanding and confusion between Brintellix and the anti-blood clotting therapy Brilinta (ticagrelor), in 2016.
