The Teva generic XR is actually just relabeled Activas, and tbh it's one of the worst for me. It's the only "brand" of Lamotrigine in any form that makes me space out completely an hour or two after taking it. That may just mean it's strong or metabolizes different than others but imho it's an outlier generic and def not made at the same place w the sam ingredients/formula as the pre-2019 Teva IR.

The two generics that seem passable for me are Unichem and Taro. At the moment I'm on a run w Unichem and doing ok. I have an issue w changing genetic and tweaking dosages/when I take pills. So that likely isn't helping. I'm going to give Unichem a full month+ at 250 after a period of switching anytime I felt a bad mood swing.

I did order brand Glaxo from Canada for a bit but California passed a law making almost all prescriptions electronic only. My doc wouldn't ever willingly help me get a prescription to Canada but he used to give me paper scripts and say "do whatever, I just don't want to know about it".

saw you drug store . Com (put all together) was a legit Ca pharmacy I used at least 4/5 times and they were always very helpful (easy to contact someone on phone/email).

Marks marine pharmacy is one that is vouched for in an Ozempic group I'm in on FB.

But yea, for IR generic best is likely Taro/Unichem. XR seem a little more consistent - Dr. Reddy seemed ok along w Trupharma. The ODT (Oral disentagrating tabs) seemed to work pretty well (strong) but they were pricey and I never tried a full week+ on them. The brand I had (still have a few left) is Par.....
