At this time, no generic Zelapar (orally disintegrating selegiline) products are available in the United States. Companies on the Internet may claim to sell a generic version of the drug, but these drugs could be fake, substandard, and potentially dangerous. You should not buy any generic Zelapar until an approved version is available, which is predicted to be in July 2014, when the first patent expires.
