Have You Heard Of The Generic Form Of Spiriva

Can you tell me if there is a generic form of Spiriva? Thanks.

Answer

In the United States, there is no generic available for Spiriva. The patent will not run out until March of 2014 as you can read here. Once the patent runs out it will be possible for other companies to realease cheaper versions of Spiriva. However, there is a generic inhaler available in other countries (as noted above) and it's called Tiova.
