Toplep 50mg Contraindications

I'm a bit concerned - Why does the doctor prescribe epilepsy and bipolar medication to treat a migraine patient? Won't that cause a migraine sufferer to actually develop epilepsy or bipolar? Can Toplep med actually cause damage to a migraine patients and is it safe to use? I'm 5 days on Toplep 50mg. It really helps for my headaches, but I'm worried, I definitely don't have bipolar or any other depression conditions. Please help.

Has anyone had problems with lamotrigine (generic Lamictal) manufactured by Northstar Rx ## My pharmacy changed my Teva brand of Lamotrigine to North Star brand. Has anyone noticed a difference with the difference switching brands? ## Yes. I take lamotrigine for bi-polar depression. I have found that the Northstar version of the drug doesn't work. I took it and my mood crashed. Then I got back on the Teva made lamotrigine, and my mood stabilized. I believe the Northstar product in effective. Try to get your prescribing physician to write "Teva - DAW" on your script. ## My original Hyzaar was refilled by mail with Losartan Hctz 100 by Northstar and I think I'm having serious side effects that I just now attribute to the bp med. My legs are cramping; hip joints hurt; panti...

Hi. I'm 34. I had a brAin stroke due to AVM hemmoraging last year . I got gamma knife surgery done but it takes three years for gamma to work(80percent chance that it will work.

Like I have to do something very important . I get easily irritated and I can't control my emotions . I feel claustrophobic and overly burdened . The doctor mentioned that often after gamma some chemical is released in the brain that causes such symptoms n it only disappears once it completes it's cycle . He has given me meds for that .

Is anyone familiar with the epilepsy medication aptiom and what are the reviews ## Hi Nicole, From the looks of it, you seem to be the first person to post about this specific medication here on MedsChat. But in terms of reviews, the FDA approved Aptiom back in 2013 based on three large clinical trials, including over 1,400 people who've been living with partial-onset seizures. According to these studies, Aptiom reportedly demonstrated a statistically significant reduction (of up to 50% or more) in standardized seizure frequency from where patients were prior to treatment. This is compared to a 22% reduction in patients who received a placebo. Based on this information alone, Aptiom sounds like a viable treatment option in my opinion. However, one must also consider pros and cons wh...
