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.
Is there a generic substitution for Alphagan? It would help us to be able to pay less for this med?

Yes. It's called Bromonodine.
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!
