I have to wait until I go to the pharmacy later today in order to find out which brand I have been using. In the past, I have asked for the same generic manufacturer for my prescriptions.

The only drug that I have had major problems with is lamotrigine. People always describe their generic version of Lamictal to be inferior. I tried two generic lamotrigine products. What a mess. They produced very little therapeutic benefit. I had to bring the Mylan version dosage up to 500 mg/day to produce any kind of antidepressant effect at all. The only generic version that was worth a damn was the original Teva product. I would rate it as equipotent to the brand name, Lamictal. Unfortunately, Teva stopped manufacturing their original product at the original factory when they bought out Allergan, another generic drug company. Allergan made its own version of lamotrigine. Without a need for having two lamotrigine factories, they decided to close the original one in favor of the Allergan factory.

I have not tried the Teva / Allergan version of lamotrigine, lamotrigine XR.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
