thanks, I wish I had known about it before I got my rx filled; I paid over $120.00 for the brand name not knowing any better.

I am not sure if ithe generic version is manufactured yet, by those company's, but it will certainly be a major savings.

I was buying Zocor @ 50.00 a month. The generic version is 10 dollars a month.

If you don't mind my asking:  $120 for your scrip of Ambien?  Is that for 30 pills?  60?  90 or what?  Sounds like more money than I would have expected. 

Good thing I get mine through my own, um....prescription assistance program.    8)

I used to think generics were identical to name brand, but I've been reading on here (the forums) that people are switching back from Atripla (sustiva and truvada) to Sustiva and Truvada separately because of side effects. 

That, to me is amazing and scary.  Why would there be a difference in the combo pill that is supposed to be nothing more than the two brands in one pill?
