Cheaper Alternative

There may be other prescriptions in the same class (that work in the same way) that could treat your condition just as well at a much lower cost.

If you're taking an expensive brand-name-only drug, it may be worth asking your doctor if there are any other less expensive, generic, or over-the-counter options that might work for you.

When Will the Generic Be Available?

It is possible that Epogen may become available as generic epoetin alfa after May 2015. Generics are typically much cheaper than the branded version of a drug.

This is the earliest possible generic release date based on patent expiration at this time. It is possible that epoetin alfa could become available sooner or later, depending on FDA approval, other patents, and whether any manufacturers decide to make a generic version of Epogen.
