Scott, what did you decide?
For me, namenda seems to be so impactful that I notice the difference even when i go on to a generic version.....maybe i have junk, but last 10 days i've been out of my name brand becuase insurance only pays for 60 a month of the 10mg which only lasts <15 days, so i have to for the rest of the month use generic i buy overseas, at 50mg dose, whoosh totally different...and condition signfiicantly worsened...namenda NAME BRAND was stabilizing me, even when trying to do dose adjustments, the memantine from overseas i dont think was even nearly half as powerful....it may even be total bunk, i don't know.
Anyway, did you try namenda again at significant dose? Titrate upward, and only use name brand!
