    According to the U.S. Food and Drug (FDA), there is not a generic version of Copaxone. It is the brand name for the drug containing the active ingredient glatiramer. Two companies have applied to produce a generic version of the drug, but the manufacturer of Copaxone has sued both companies. Although the FDA has denied the petition to block approval of a generic version, it may be years before a generic version is marketed. If you see an advertisement for generic Copaxone, do not buy it. It is not the correct medication.
