SAN DIEGO, May 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:NBIX) announced today that the Company has received communication from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) indicating that the agency has determined that indiplon 5 mg and 10 mg capsules are approvable and the 15 mg XR tablets are not approvable at this time.
