I just did my mail-order refill of Detrol LA, and my CVS/Caremark pharmacy automatically changed it to the new Generic, "Tolterodine 4MG ER Cap". I've often not liked generics (sometimes the inactive ingredients matter) - so in doing some more searching, I found that the Detrol people finally had to let go of their patent, Mylan began selling in Jan 2014, so my Rx has been automatically changed. We shall see if the efficacy is as good...
