I just picked up my first prescription for the Stalevo generic. It's still very expensive - $453 for my month's supply. I thought the generic would be a lot cheaper!

According to the Wal Mart where I get my Rx's..They gave me a quote of $360 for 90 Stalevo 200 mg brand name

And I wonder if the generic works as well as the brand name?
