In a resolution to the longstanding conflict of when Lidoderm goes generic, Endo agreed to supply Watson with the drug in exchange for a 25 percent royalty until seven months pass or until another generic drug enters the market. Watson will begin marketing its generic version of Lidoderm on Sept. 15, 2013.
Endo's patent was originally set to expire in 2015, but Watson sued for an earlier date.
