By analyzing the patents and regulatory protections it appears that the earliest date for generic entry will be November 13, 2024. This may change due to patent challenges or generic licensing.

Annual sales in 2018 were $4.6bn, indicating a strong incentive for generic entry.

There have been sixteen patent litigation cases involving the patents protecting this drug, indicating strong interest in generic launch. Recent data indicate that 63% of patent challenges are decided in favor of the generic patent challenger and that 54% of successful patent challengers promptly launch generic drugs.
