When Will the Generic Be Available?

It is possible that Kuvan may become available as generic sapropterin after November 2025. 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 sapropterin could become available sooner or later, depending on FDA approval, other patents, and whether any manufacturers decide to make a generic version of Kuvan.
