Lamictal generic price

Common Questions and Answers about Lamictal generic price


822153 tn?1333066595 That's exactly what my Psychiatrist does. For example he has me on generic Lamictal and says that I were on the name brand Lamictal that he would only have me taking 150Mgs a day, but since I am on the Generic he moves it to 200Mgs a day. In your case you also need to look at how long you have been taking Prozac (fluxotine) because after many years of usage Prozac can lose it effectivness as the result of resistance built up by your body.
1116472 tn?1260078652 I have been prescribed Lamictal (taking the generic Lamotrigine) for about 3 years now for my bipolar disorder alone. I started with 25 or 50 mg to see if I'd be allegoric and develop the rash that rarely happens but can be severe. My body didn't reacted poorly to it (my mother also took it before me and was ok as well) and I was moved to 100 mg then 150 mg and now have been on 200 mg for a year and a half.
Avatar n tn Keep in mind that it is scientificaly proven that generic Lamictal (Lamotragine) is not as strong as name brand Lamictal. This is why I take 200Mgs a day of Generic lamictal when if I were taking the name brand lamictal I would only need 100Mgs to get the same effect. For this reason many doctors like to prescribe the name brand only, but the difference in potency can be made up by taking more of the Geneic. This difference in potency has been tested and documented by many indipendent labs.
Avatar f tn The medications that are less expensive are the ones that are available in generic form. Lamictal is available in generic form. With antipsychotics the latest one that is available in generic form is Risperdal. However there should be insurance options such as Medicaid or if you are working and its available in your state the Medicaid Buy in for Working People with Disabilities.
433485 tn?1321816990 We tried a lot of different drugs but they did not work or would work for a month or so and then poop out. I am also on Lamictal and Seraquel ( PM) I am on the generic Effexor. Have never been on the regular one. I am diagnosed BP 2 with GAD. I am 55 and have suffered with depression before in my life. At age 9, 16 and 38. That last time I was hospitalized and put on Zoloft which worked for years. 4 and a half years ago, this episode started. Not sure why.
603543 tn?1255298050 Keep in mind that Weith's patent for Effexor XR expires very soon, and in a couple months Effexor XR will be avalibe in a generic form, thus saving you a ton of money for it. You can now get generic Venlafaxine (the active ingredient in Effexor) but most people don't do very well on it because it doesn't have the "sustained release action" that Effexor XR has. Soon Effexor XR will be avalible in generic, just not sure when.
Avatar n tn Plus, a lot of the meds used can be bought as generic. I take Lamictal and the generic lamotrogine is actually $4.00 when I get it with my insurance. If you don't have health care insurance, most states/counties have a hospital that offers ER services that can't refuse treatment. You can't really put a price on the way you will feel if you are truly bipolar and get the help you need. It's like turning on a light in a dark room.
Avatar m tn The problem is that my insurance company refuses to cover the medication, which is $2400 out of pocket for the generic form. I just cannot afford to pay $29,000 a year for medication. I started by calling the pharmaceutical company to inquire about assistance, but they have canceled their Provigil assistance program and also told me that depression is one of the few illnesses for which they do not provide assistance anyway.
Avatar f tn In Britain where there exist the conservative docs, they write lithium (the king) and either/or an AC (depakote or tegretol) in the USA another AC (lamictal) etc...
Avatar f tn I know I have read this somewhere while doing searches on this board but I can't find it now. I take TEVA brand generic klonopin .75 mgs a day. I just found out that my insurance is going to force all employees to use the mail in prescription method on all meds taken on a regular basis. My sister also takes klonopin and uses this mail-in pharmacy (we work together). Her pills are pink and mine are yellow, same dose, so I know express scripts doesn't use TEVA brand klonopin.
Avatar f tn I gave Keppra a fair chance (6 weeks) and it's not for me (or my poor husband). He switched me to Lamictal which is also used to stabilize mood swings in people with Bipolar I. After reading that I felt pretty relieved. It's going to be a Happy New Year for me in 2009! I recommend switching. I can't imagine how a child must feel on this medicine. She really can't help herself. KixNgo - I loved dilantin. It was wonderful. I wish I could take that again.
585414 tn?1288944902 I always find it hard to understand how some people can ignore the advice of their doctors, most of it gained at the blood price medicine so often pays, who may have 10 or more years education for the advice of a guy or gal at the local health food shop / naturopath / faith healer / web forum. I have used a naturopath in the past, had a good one, i love a good ayuverdic massage but I avoid vitamins for the most part as my doctors prefer a balanced diet to pills where possible.
696149 tn?1314324559 I mean, I'm not taking any other opiods and I'm also taking Welbutrin XL and Lamictal. These are new. Even when I was taking the Suboxone, I wasn't taking anything at all except that to make sure it was nothing else. I just don't understand it. If I'm allergic to Suboxone and Subutex, then why doesn't it make me feel like right away? I'm just scared to go off because I don't want to be depressed.
Avatar n tn I can actually say effexor is a good way to ease the rough ride we all experience with this disease. I have depression and generalized anxiety disorder. I was pretty much scared of everyday life. I was weirdly uncomfortable in my own skin...i over thought everything that it keep me from participating in my own life. I was tired of this ridiculous roller coaster ride, that only I was riding. I went to my doctors and was put on effexor, gradually worked up to 150mg a day.
Avatar n tn (I have also been on Lamictal, with the other, started at the end of taking Lexapro and then been on it since). I got off of Celexa and feel terrible. I am still on the Lamictal and recently upped it but it has not helped with my "feelings". I still feel terrible (as I have been crying for hour and half straight right now). My doctor gave me a prescription for Wellbutrin. I am nervous about using it. Scared it wont work like Celexa did and I'm afraid of gaining more weight.
Avatar f tn I went off Topamax for a while, and had decided it was not worth having migraines! (My insurance will only pay 50% of the price of Imitrex or Maxalt, or any drug, and worse yet, limits me on how many a month, so I need a way to PREVENT migraines.) The real reason I need to drop Topamax is due to the Brain Fog. I work for a major corporation, and have made a few public blunders like forgetting stuff, in the last year.
Avatar n tn I need to know what these things look like or if they have a V symbol on them Not sure iwjhatf the Canadian (generic) looks like, I think she's hurt herself on purpose and is now contemplating going to the doctor. We're sliding downhill fast. Please help. This is getting scary.
Avatar n tn If you find yourself irritable, your doctor can give you something during the time when you're most irritable, just to get you through that. I found Lamictal to be a godsend to even out my moods, and I'm not bi-polar - but there are side effects, and not everyone can take it because in a small percentage of people it can cause Stevens Johnson syndrome. I tried 25 mg Seroquel during my periods, and it evened me out, but was too sedating.
Avatar n tn I tried Lamictal but it made me literally stupid and gave me horrible acne, then I tried Depakote but it made me like the living dead I was miserable and tired and I gained 20lbs and started losing my hair (i didnt appreciate that), currently I'm on trileptal which is great because my hair came back and my depakote weight went away but i dont think it is getting rid of my seizures so its basically useless, so now I am slowly adding topamax to my regime!
Avatar n tn Hydrocodone is generic for vicodin both come in different strengths!!!!!
Avatar n tn Fairly cheap, $4 a box for the generic brand. I placed my last patch on Thursday evening, Sept. 11, 2008. I wore it until Monday September 15, 2008. Tuesday afternoon I fell a couple hours short of avoiding the vomiting, taking 25mg of Meclizine a little too late (about 45 min. prior to “episode”). Immediately after recouping myself I took another 25mg out of fear I had “removed” the previous dose from my body.
Avatar n tn The reason why I was trying others,was the price of generic Serax.It's fairly expensive if you don't have coverage..I now do and #90 Serax 30 mg.capsules are on;y $15/mnth..
Avatar n tn the oxys worked great when taken as perscribed but now the price of the meds has gone thru the roof 1000.00+ and my docter has followed suit 250.00 the last visit no cash no scripts no compastion they get you hooked and drive you broke just for killing the pain now i am going threw withdrawell and its horrible as is the pain this medication helped me greatly let me live somewhat a normall life now the pain is back with withdrawells. broke and disgusted in tampa advise dont let them hook you.
Avatar n tn This decision could not have come at a worse time, considering the price of fuel. I'm going to ride my bike to work only three times a week. I'll see how my body reacts to this. Thought #4: Plain anxiety. I did mention this before, but I would like to readdress it. The tremors wake us up, but I really believe that what keeps us awake is the anxiety we experience as a result of the tremors.
Avatar n tn Like pretty much everyone else I've had anxiety and weight gain, and I have the most intense's miserable. I was on Estrostep and really liked it, but the price sky rocketed. Im going to my Dr. next week to talk about it and HOPEFULLY switch, and I'll let you know what she says.
