There is no generic available for Travatan Z yet.

There is no generic for TravatanZ, but Latanoprost is a generic for Xalatan. All of these glaucoma meds are prostaglandin analogs. Many patients have a good result with the generic; however, many different companies make this generic so you are not always getting the same compound every time like you do with brand medications.
