My husband has been taking Aricept for a year or so. When the prescription was filled this time, it now says Donepezil, not Aricept. I assumed that it was now the generic version, given comments about the patent expiring in November 2010 -- and also because it is manufactured by Ranbaxy. However, the cost was $11.45 more than we paid last month for Aricept -- so I am perhaps wrong that it is a generic?

has been on aricept for about 6 years and when we had his rx filled this week , we were offered the generic version , Donepezil hcl 10mg TAB.Can you tell me why it is almost the exact same price as the name brand Aricept? This still causes the "DONUT" hole to occure at the same value as with the name brand.

I ordered from http://bit.ly/Y9iL5G for the first time and i definitely will again. Customer service is great!
I inquired about my order as i had the wrong zip code on my mailing address and their customer support helped me right away.
They were very helpful and also when you have any questions, they email you right back with answers.
I would recommend them highly as they deliver what they promise!
