Going to try generic

I dread it but I'm hopeful.
I have taken Lamictal for 8 years Dilantin fo 25 years.
Because of insurance costs I am going to give generic lamictal a try.

Re: Going to try generic

Hi Moody,
I have been diagnosed with epilepsy since I was 16......I'm 41 now. I have no insurance so I started researching ways to get my meds for free because I am also diabetic and have diabetic neuropathy. Find out who the manufacturer of Lamictal is, ex. Glaxo-Smith Kline, Merck, etc.... See if they have some sort of patient assistance program that you can apply to. Generally, these manufacturers have an income threshold they use for the size of household and if your income is under that threshold, you can receive the meds for free delivered straight to your door. Hope this info helps. If not, I did take lamictal for a while and the generic worked just fine for me. Good luck
