Generic Stalevo

Is Generic Carbidopa/Levodopa/Entacapone as Good as Stalevo?

All generic medications must undergo certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generics are equivalent to the brand-name medications and assigns a rating to each one.
 
An "AB" rating means that the FDA has determined that a generic medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication. All of the generic Stalevo versions except Caraco's are AB rated, meaning they should be equivalent to Stalevo. Caraco's generic version is not AB rated, which makes sense. It is not really a true generic; it is the real brand-name drug that has been repackaged as a generic, and as a result, testing and rating are unnecessary.
