Generic Stalevo

All strengths of Stalevo (carbidopa-levodopa-entacapone) are now available in generic form. With the exception of the version made by Caraco, all the generic versions have been given an "AB" rating by the FDA, which means they have been tested and are considered equivalent to the brand-name drug. The version made by Caraco is an "authorized generic," so no testing is required.
