Generic rasagiline (Azilect) prescription filled, seems about the same

I was worried when I got to the pharmacy this past Tuesday and they told me they had filed my prescription with a generic form of azilect. After taking it for a couple of days, it seems to work no differently. The only difference I notice is the generic pill tastes metallic where the original tasted more sweet. The manufacturer is Alvogen.

Are you in the US? I have been waiting for a generic version of Azilect for months, since my insurance changed and the copay increased drastically.

I am in the US. Massachusetts to be specific. The generic was $300 less than the brand name. Both were covered by blue cross blue shield, but the generic had a fifteen dollar copay while the brand name had a thirty dollar copay.

Was that your copay with health insurance or the total cost?
