My mother is on a limited income, and it would help her save on her expenses if she could purchase a generic prescription for the medication, Alphagan - one that would be equally effective in her eye care.
1 Feb 2012
Original Alphagan is available only in generic form (as brimonidine tartrate 0.2% ophthalmic solution). It is made by various companies, including: Akorn, Inc.; Bausch & Lomb Incorporated; Falcon Pharmaceuticals & Pacific Pharmaceuticals Limited.
At this time, generic Alphagan P is available in just one strength -- brimonidine tartrate 0.15% ophthalmic solution. This generic product is made by Falcon Pharmaceuticals. The lower strength of Alphagan P (0.1%) is not yet available in generic form.
For more info, please do talk to the optimist, take care, best wishes!
