Generic Tranxene

Now that the patent for the brand-name version has expired, generic Tranxene is available. However, these are generic versions of the immediate-release form only. There are no generic versions of the extended-release form. Various companies make generic Tranxene, and the FDA has given it an "AB" or "AP" rating, which means it is considered equivalent to the brand-name version.
