That it's not really a study. A small sample on a large variety of different products.

I don't feel nice, just realistic.

Well good luck, because the people on this board will notice a difference on your behalf even if you don't.

What might you offer to prove your point?

Oh. I forgot to ask you what your point was.

My point was that the pubmed link didn't prove anything. I guess your body just wasn't absorbing any lamotrigine whatsoever from the Mylan product. Only mere mortals can feel worse due to reasons other than medication changes.

No, you are definitely not being nice.

Realistic? I guess that depends on who you talk to.

No, Ed. What is your point overall? You seem to be passionate about this. What is it that you are trying to defend?

I suppose being nice just consists of agreeing with everything you believe.

You are trying to defend something. You have always had a leaning towards the concept that generics are equivalent to original product. Am I wrong in having this impression?

I can't help being right all the time. Once, I thought I was wrong, but it turned out that I was mistaken.

Is it true that generic drugs are not tested clinically?

I believe that any differences are hugely exaggerated. People on this board spend a great deal of time talking about it and causing anxiety. Every negative event which happens on the generic is attributed to being on the generic.

Yes, they are tested for bioavailability, except some generics are actually the same product as the brand, and do not require any testing. For example, Winthrop's alfuzosin is exactly the same product as Sanofi's Xatral.

No. I asked if they are tested CLINICALLY.

Okay. What leads you to this conclusion?

I've read it. For a start, most people on this board, including you, do not have epilepsy. Secondly, what would happen if people were switched from a generic to a brand? Would they get better or worse?

Is bioavailability the same as a clinical effect?

No.

There is no observational study of how these generic drugs affect real people.

I guess you absorb the drug, the same drug, in the same amount, but as if by magic it doesn't work.

Perhaps you could offer us all a better explanation? Did Mylan forget to put any lamotrigine into their tablets?

It is not my job to ascertain why I reacted poorly to Mylan. I just know that I did.

You did, and there could be a hundred and one reasons why you felt bad at that time, one of which is due to the change in medication.
