What Is The Best Generic Of Lamictal

I've been taking the generic for Lamictal for about five years. Recently I've been feeling different at about the beginning of the year. I use to take the white ones but now I am taking a generic by Taro. What is the best generic for this drug? I never really payed any attention until I started getting this crazy migraines. If anyone has any insights it would be much appreciated. ## There's really no way to say which is the best, since different people can react differently, so it depends on what works for you. The best idea I can give you is to check with your pharmacy and see who manufactured the ones that you used to take and ask if they can order them back in for you. They usually can and will sometimes do so for their regular customers. Does anyone else have any advice ...

Dilantin, Losartan and Metoprolol

My husband takes Dilantin & Losartan 50mg, but his Dr. recently put him on Metoprolol 25mg twice a day. Now he's feeling antsy at night (can't stay still)... The Dr. never said he was giving him anything... My husband's feet had some swelling. To me, there's too many side effects & a lack of communication from the Dr... Any info is helpful. Thanks. ## Has he been told to take the Metoprolol in addition to the other medications, or was he supposed to replace the Losartan with the Metoprolol? What levels has been showing on his blood pressure? The FDA does warn that Metoprolol can cause nervousness as a side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension, and increased urination. Have you and your husband considered consulting a different doctor for an...

Gabapentin and White Blood Cell Count

I just started taking Gabapentin a month ago and my white blood cell count is high, but never has been. Can this be why? Will I need to postpone any surgeries because of this? ## Yes, the FDA does list that as being a known side effect of Gabapentin, along with nausea, dehydration, somnolence, mood changes, and weight changes. As to whether or not you can have surgery that will depend on the opinion of the surgeon, and whether or not they actually detect a real infection, or if it seems that this has just been caused solely by the medication. What type of surgeries are you due to undergo? I know when I needed dental surgery, and my WBC count was high, they assumed it was due to my dental infections, so they did the surgery, anyway. It turns out they were correct, a couple weeks after su...
