Zonegran vs Zonisamide (Generic)
Please advise ASAP! I have Trigeminal Neuralgia due to MS. I have been on Zonegran 100mg x 4 once a day for 9 years. The insurance company switched me to the generic about 1-1/2 years ago & my hair is coming out by the handfuls!! Has anyone else experience this when switching over to the generic = Zonisamide?? ## Hello, Alex! How are yoU? Though it's not listed as a side effect, there have been many complaints about it happening with both the name brand and the generic. Have you discussed it with your prescriber? What other medications have you tried?
