> Anyway, did you try namenda again at significant dose? Titrate upward, and only use name brand!
Thanks for the tips!
I'm sorry you have had such bad luck with the generic memantine. I have just discontinued my trial of Topamax. I'm going to let things settle down a bit and then consider moving on to memantine.
Thanks for the words of encouragement.
