Thanks. ..my doc won't change me over to a similar generic because one of my main symptoms is restless sleep; the generic has insomnia as a side effect.
I am signed up with the Assistance Fund out of FL., and the can reduce the cost/copay with Medicare. I use currently use them through my PPO and my copy is $15.00 for Azilect
