Generic Caphosol

What If My Pharmacy Doesn't Carry Caphosol?

There are many different prescription products available, and a pharmacy cannot possibly stock every one. Most pharmacies will order Caphosol for you if they do not have it immediately in stock. Caphosol can also be ordered through specialty pharmacies and delivered to your home. Ask your healthcare provider about this option if you are interested in having Caphosol delivered to you.
If these options do not work for you, you could also ask your healthcare provider to prescribe a different saliva substitute product.

Is Supersaturated Calcium Phosphate a Generic Caphosol?

No -- supersaturated calcium phosphate is the active ingredient in Caphosol, but is not a generic version of it. What can be confusing is that the active ingredient of a drug is often referred to as the "generic name."
The generic name is different from a generic version of a medicine. In order for there to be a generic version, the original medicine must have gone off-patent, and another company besides the original manufacturer must make the product.
Although there are no generic versions of Caphosol, there are other supersaturated calcium phosphate products available.
