                        -------------------------
 
              ANNUAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS JUNE 29, 1994
 
  This proxy statement is furnished in connection with the solicitation of
proxies by the Board of Directors of Mylan Laboratories Inc., a Pennsylvania
corporation (the "Company"), for an annual meeting of shareholders to be held
on June 29, 1994. The approximate date on which this proxy statement and
proxy are being sent to shareholders of the Company is May 20,1994.
 
  The shares represented by each properly executed proxy, in the form enclosed
and received by the Company will be voted as specified thereon by the
shareholder, and such shares will be voted FOR the nominees named and proposals
described below if no such specification is made. Any proxy given by a
shareholder may be revoked in writing at any time prior to its exercise, but
the revocation of the proxy shall not be effective until notice thereof has
been received by the Secretary of the Company. Abstentions and broker non-votes
will be included in determining the number of shares present and entitled to
vote at the meeting but will not be considered to be voted for any proposal.
Because the election of directors is based on a plurality and the election of
auditors on a majority of the votes cast, abstentions and broker non-votes will
not affect the outcome of those matters.
 
  References herein to "fiscal 1994" mean the Company's fiscal
year ended March 31, 1994.
 
                VOTING SECURITIES AND RECORD DATE
 
  Persons who as of the close of business on April 30, 1994 held of record

Stock"), are entitled to notice of and to vote at the annual meeting. As of
such date, there were 79,213,013 shares of Common Stock outstanding. Holders of

                           ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
 
  Directors are elected to serve until the next annual meeting of shareholders
and until their respective successors are elected and qualify. Proxies received
in the accompanying form will be voted for the election to the Board of
Directors of the seven nominees listed below except in such instance that
authority to vote for any of the nominees is withheld. The seven nominees

occurs, the proxies will be voted for such substituted nominee as may be
determined by the Board of Directors. Information concerning the nominees, all
of whom are presently members of the Board of Directors, is set forth below.

  The Board of Directors has established an Executive Committee,an Audit
Committee, an Executive Bonus Committee, a Stock Option Committee and certain
other committees. The Company does not have a nominating committee. The
Executive Committee, which met formally and informally on numerous occasions
during fiscal 1994, is composed of Messrs. Puskar, Barnett, Todd and Smiley of
the Board of Directors of the Company. The Audit Committee, which met twice
during the fiscal year, reviews the preparations for and scope of the annual
audit of the Company's financial statements, reviews drafts of such statements,
makes recommendations as to the retention of independent auditors and as to
their fees, and performs such other duties relative to the financial statements
of the Company and other matters as the Board of Directors may assign from time
to time. The Audit Committee is composed of Messrs. DeLynn, Gaisford and
Graciano. The Executive Bonus Committee, which met twice during the fiscal
year, reviews the recommendations of management as to bonuses for the officers
of the Company and reports its conclusions to the Board of Directors. The
Executive Bonus Committee is composed of Messrs. DeLynn and Smiley. The Stock
Option Committee, which met twice during the fiscal year, administers and
grants stock options under the Company's 1986 Incentive Stock Option Plan and
the 1992 Nonemployee Directors Plan. The Stock Option Committee is composed of
Messrs. Puskar, Todd and Smiley. The Board of Directors met five times during
fiscal 1994.
 
  SECTION 16(A) COMPLIANCE. Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934 requires the Company's directors and executive officers to file reports of
ownership of the Company's equity securities (and derivative securities) and
changes in such ownership with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the
New York Stock Exchange and to provide copies of those filings to the Company.
Based solely upon a review of such reports and certain written representations,
the Company believes that its directors and executive officers are in
compliance with their respective Section 16(a) filing requirements.
 

COMPENSATION OF DIRECTORS
 
  The Company presently has seven directors, three of whom (Messrs.
Puskar,Barnett and Todd) are executive officers of the Company and do not
receive any additional compensation for serving as directors of the Company.
Mr. McKnight also did not receive any additional compensation for serving as
director of the Company. Messrs. DeLynn and Graciano were each paid a
director's fee of $25,500. Dr. Gaisford was paid a director's fee of $24,000
during the fiscal year 1994. Mr. Smiley received $43,500 as compensation during
the fiscal year for services as a director and a member of the Executive,
Executive Bonus and Stock Option Committees.
 
  During fiscal year 1994, the Company rented aircraft from Mackair, a venture
in which Mr. Roy McKnight, formerly the Chairman of the Board and Chief
Executive Officer of the Company, was the sole equity holder. After Mr.
McKnight's death, the Company purchased those aircraft from Mackair. The
rentals were on a "flight time" basis, and provided for aggregate rental
payments of $659,283. The rentals and purchase were on terms to the Company no
less favorable than could have been obtained from an unaffiliated third party.

                         EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
 
BOARD OF DIRECTORS REPORT ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
 
Overview and Philosophy
 
  The Company's executive compensation policy is to provide compensation and
benefit programs to enable it to attract and retain talented executives. Total
compensation includes base salary, annual cash bonuses, long-term incentives
and employee benefits. Guiding principles include offering competitive base
salary and employee benefit packages compared to similarly capitalized
companies with comparable operating results; annual cash bonuses based on
individual contributions to financial results and strategic planning and
long-term stock based incentives, helping to assure that management's interests
are closely aligned with those of shareholders. The Company seeks to reward
outstanding executive performance contributing to superior operating results
and enhanced shareholder value.
 
  The Board of Directors administers the Company's executive compensation
policy through its Executive Bonus Committee, its Stock Option Committee and
its supervision of the determinations of the Company's senior executive
officers on compensation matters. The base salary of the Chairman of the Board
and the Chief Executive Officer of the Company is determined by the Board
of Directors acting on the recommendations of its Executive Bonus Committee.
The Executive Bonus Committee is composed of two outside directors(Messrs.
DeLynn and Smiley). The Chief Executive Officer and President and Executive
Vice President of the Company determine annually the base salaries to be paid
to all other executive officers and the Chief Executive Officer and President
determines annually the base salary to be paid to the Executive Vice President.
Determinations made by these executive officers are reported to the Board at
its next regular meeting.
 
  Annual cash bonuses are determined by action of the Board of Directors on
recommendations made to it by its Executive Bonus Committee. Stock options may
be granted to key employees of the Company as determined by the Stock Option
Committee pursuant to the Company's 1986 Incentive Stock Option Plan, as
amended. Stock options are also granted to nonemployee directors of the Company
on a formula basis as provided by the 1992 Nonemployee Director Stock Option
Plan. The Stock Option Committee is currently composed of Messrs. Puskar, Todd
and Smiley. After compliance with new Rule 16b-3 becomes mandatory, each of the
1986 Incentive Stock Option Plan, as amended, and the 1992 Nonemployee Director
Stock Option Plan will be administered by at least two members of the Company's
Board of Directors, each of which must be a "disinterested person" within the
meaning of new Rule 16b-3.
 
Report of 1994 Compensation of Executive Officers
 
  Salaries paid to executive officers were unchanged from fiscal 1993. The
increased bonuses to individual executive officers reflect their increased
contributions to the Company's operating results.
 
Report on 1994 Compensation of Chief Executive Officer and President
 
The compensation for the Company's Chief Executive Officer and President is set
within the philosophy and policy identified above for all executive officers.
Last year in setting the salary of the Chief Executive Officer and President of
the Company, the Board of Directors considered the financial results and the
benefits of certain strategic acquisitions in fiscal 1992 and compensation paid
to the chief executive officers and presidents of comparable companies with
comparable operating results.        
                                                                  


















                                     4                                   

<PAGE>
The Board of Directors determined not to change the salary of the Chief
Executive Officer and President and did not undertake any detailed comparison
of the Company's operating results for any periods in making that
determination. In so doing, the Board of Directors was mindful that in fiscal
1993, the Company's net sales, net earnings and shareholders' equity increased
by $80,028,000; $30,507,000; and $92,520,000; respectively, and that the
Company's earnings per share increased from $.52 to $.92.
 
  The salary reported for Mr. McKnight reflects amounts paid through his death
in November, 1993. The bonus paid to Mr. Puskar for fiscal 1994 returned to a
level comparable with years previous to 1993 and is based upon the Company's
fiscal 1994 operating results. In fiscal 1994, the Company's net sales,
earnings and shareholders' equity increased by $39,809,000; $2,446,000 and
$83,997,000; respectively, and the Company's earnings per share increased from
$.92 to $.93 for fiscal 1994 in spite of increased competition and declining
prices in the generic pharmaceutical industry, generally. The higher bonus paid
to Mr. Puskar in fiscal 1993 included a special one time bonus to offset the
federal income tax liability resulting from the exercise of stock options in
that year.
 
  This report is submitted by the members of the Board of Directors:
 
Milan Puskar                    Dana G. Barnett          Laurence S. DeLynn
John C. Gaisford, M.D.          Richard A. Graciano      Robert W. Smiley,Esq.
C. B. Todd
 
  Deductibility of Certain Executive Compensation. Section 162(m) added to the
federal Internal Revenue Code by the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993
(the "Act"), denies publicly held corporations a deduction for compensation in
excess of $1 million per year paid or accrued with respect to certain
executives in taxable years beginning on or after January 1,1994, except to
the extent that such compensation qualifies for an exemption from that
limitation. Exempt compensation includes only the following:
(a)performance-based compensation (provided that certain outside directors,
shareholder approval, and certification requirements are met); (b) commissions;
(c) payments from certain tax-qualified retirement plans; (d) health and other
fringe benefits that are reasonably believed to be excludable from gross
income; and (e) compensation payable under a binding written contract in effect
February 17, 1993.
 
  The new deduction limitation has no effect on the Company's ability to deduct
payments made (or deemed made for tax purposes) in fiscal 1994 to the named
executive officers listed in the Summary Compensation Table. The new
limitation, however, could affect the ability of the Company and its
subsidiaries to deduct compensation paid to such officers in fiscal 1995 and
subsequent years. The Company intends to take appropriate action to comply
with Act so that deductions will be available to it for all compensation paid
to its executive officers.
 
C
OMPENSATION COMMITTEE INTERLOCKS AND INSIDER PARTICIPATION
 
  In respect of deliberations concerning executive officers compensation, all
members of the Board of Directors participated in its deliberations, except
that Mr. Puskar did not participate in votes concerning his compensation, and
all members of the Executive Bonus and Stock Option Committees participated in
their respective deliberations. Messrs. Puskar, Barnett and Todd are executive
officers of the Company. Mr. Smiley is Secretary of the Company.
 
  There are no interlocking relationships, as defined in the regulations of the
Securities and Exchange Commission, involving members of the Board of
Directors, or its Executive Bonus or Stock Option Committees.

EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT AND TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT AND CHANGE-IN-CONTROL
ARRANGEMENTS
 
The Company entered into an employment contract with Mr. Puskar on April
28,1983 which specifies his respective duties and provides for ordinary
insurance and health benefits as provided for the Company's salaried employees.
This employment contract originally called for a term expiring on March 31,
1988, and since this date has been continued on a year- to-year basis
subject to termination by either the Company or the executive at anytime.
Salary and bonuses under this employment contract are as determined by the
Company's Board of Directors. Mr. Puskar's employment contract provides for
continued payments of salary for a period of one year following any termination
of his employment contract by the Company. The Salary Continuation Plan
referred to in footnote 2 to the Summary Compensation Table provides for the
payment of post-retirement compensation pursuant to agreements with key
employees, including executive officers, over a period not exceeding fifteen
years commencing at retirement. The amounts accrued for executive officers in
fiscal 1994 are identified in footnote 2 to the Summary Compensation Table. The
Company has no other compensatory plan or arrangements resulting from the
resignation, retirement or other termination (including any termination or
change in responsibility following a change-in-control) of an executive
officer's employment with the Company or its subsidiaries.

                          INDEPENDENT AUDITORS
 
  The Board of Directors has recommended that Deloitte & Touche be elected by
the shareholders to act as auditors of the Company for the current fiscal year.
Proxies received in the accompanying form will be so voted unless other
specification is made. The affirmative votes of a majority of the shares of
Common Stock present and voting (in person or by proxy) are required to adopt
the proposal.  
  The Company's financial statements for fiscal 1994 were examined by Deloitte
& Touche. In connection with the examination of the financial statements,
Deloitte & Touche also reviewed the Company's annual report to shareholders and
its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
  It is expected that a representative of Deloitte & Touche will be present at
the annual meeting with the opportunity to make a statement if he desires to do
so, and will be available to respond to appropriate questions.
 
                     1995 SHAREHOLDER PROPOSALS
 
  To be considered for inclusion in the Company's proxy statement for the 1995
annual meeting, shareholder proposals must be received by the Company at its
principal executive offices not later than January 20, 1995.
 
                            OTHER MATTERS
 
  The Board of Directors does not know of any matters to be presented at the
annual meeting other than those discussed above. If other matters
should properly come before the meeting, shares in respect of which properly
executed proxies are received will be voted on such matters in accordance with
the judgment of the persons named in such proxies. The cost of the solicitation
of proxies on behalf of the Board of Directors will be borne by the Company. In
addition to solicitation by mail, regular employees of the Company may solicit
proxies in person or by telephone.
 
  UPON WRITTEN REQUEST TO THE UNDERSIGNED SECRETARY (AT THE ADDRESS SPECIFIED
ON PAGE 1) BY ANY SHAREHOLDER WHOSE PROXY IS SOLICITED HEREBY, THE COMPANY WILL
FURNISH A COPY OF ITS ANNUAL REPORT ON FORM 10-K FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDED
MARCH 31, 1994 AS FILED WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION, TOGETHER

WITH FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SCHEDULES THERETO, WITHOUT CHARGE TO THE
SHAREHOLDER REQUESTING SAME.
