I take Lamictal 300 mg/day as 150 mg twice a day.

I tried the original Teva lamotrigine generic. I thought it was as good as Lamictal name brand. However, I was taking 200 mg/day at the time, so I can't say for sure that Teva and GSK were really equally effective. I'm sure they were close. Mylan was terrible. In order to get any kind of improvement, I had to take 500 mg/day. Even that dosage didn't approach as much of as an improvement as GSK. In addition, it felt rather dirty. I felt muddy and flat.

Unfortunately, Teva is out of the generic lamotrigine business. They are a rather stupid company with its choices of acquisitions. Their original lamotrigine generic was IR only, and manufactured at their own factories. However, they acquired a company that also manufactured lamotrigine, but in an XR version. Teva decided to allow their acquisition to be responsible for the manufacture of geneneric lamotrigine. I don't know why they discontinued it, but their might have been some law suits involved

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.
