Teva Lamotrigine (93 463) Availability

The CVS pharmacy I have been filling my prescription at told me that Teva will no longer manufacture Lamotrigine (pill imprint: 93 463). Is this correct? I've tried other mfgs and I still had seizures and I immediately knew I should buy Teva. I have less than 10 pills left now. ## CVS lies a lot. Just filled at Walgreens with teva brand..CVS told me they cold not get .5mg clonazapam anymore also.. I switched all to Walgreens... ## after doing extensive research I found out Teva and Mylan will no longer manufacturer Lamotrigine. I have not tolerated the other generic brands. I'm trying to find a brand that work for me as well since my insurance refuses to give me name brand. If you have any luck I would appreciate you sharing ## Hello Clara, According to the Teva website they are...

Wrongfully diagnosed with extreme side effects

Long story short, my wife was wrongfully diagnosed with bipolar and was put on Lamotrigine. She had weird side effects on and off while she titrated up. Eventually got to where she and her “doctor” thought was good for her at 100mg. Well something happened and her side effects got awful. Here’s a list of what I compiled: Starts talking slow and spacey Trouble breathing Loses strength and control of body Nausea Panicky Hallucinations Oscillopsia Body convulses / twitches Stutters / trouble speaking Body tensing and convulsing like being electrocuted We call them episodes At this point we knew she wasn’t supposed to be on it and another so called doctor told her she can stop at any time cold turkey WRONG we did and the withdrawal side effects are just as bad My que...

is epitec 50 the same as epilim 500

I use epilin cr 500. Is it the same as epitec 50? My doctor changed it so I want to know if I can use it. ## I am taking 300 mg epitec for bipolar disorder. Can I take epilim instead ## Hello Frikkie, I wasn't able to pull up much information on the epitec 50 but I was able to see that it's main active ingredient is Lamotrigine where as the Epilim 500 contains the active ingredient sodium valproate. This means that the two medications are not the same, however, they are both used to treat the same conditions. These medications are both used to treat epilepsy and mental conditions with episodes of overactivity, elation or irritability. These medications may be prescribed to individuals with bipolar disorders. I hope this information helps. Let me know if there is anything else I ...

side effects of epitec

I am bipolar 2 or so they say. I have been taking epiec 200 and rispadol. I have lost the will to live without the depression of course and i have become an angry horrible person that no one can be around. I have shakes in the head and tiredness that is so not me. I have started to reducing the meds and is on 50 now. I am feeling much better and the old me is returning. Why do people think epitec is such a wonder drug? ## Epitec contains the active ingredient Lamotrigine. Risperdal contains the active ingredient Risperidone. That said, they can both cause the types of effects you experienced and this may have been compounded if you were taking them both at the same time. Have you spoken to your doctor about this problem? ## My daughter has been on Epitec for months now. She started with...

lamotrigine cough and vomiting

I have bipolar disorder and have been on almost everything for it, was taking depakote and Saphris which worked great but I gained a ton of weight so doc switched me to lamotrigine because it’s weight neutral. Starting off at 25mg/day and working up to 300mg/day. Gradually by the time I got up to 100 in the morning and 150 at nite I had a RELENTLESS bronchial cough that wouldn’t respond to any kind of treatment, that became so violent that I would start vomiting until everything was completely gone from my stomach. I don’t actually feel sick at all I just have this obnoxious never ending cough that ends in throwing up. Also had lost my voice. Now I have gone all the way back down the dosing schedule and am just getting ready to go completely off of it. Tomorrow will be...

Stopping lamotrigine

I have been on epitec for 3 months and have been suspecting it as the cause of severe depression and inability to focus. I can hardly talk to anyone because it feels like i dont have anything appropriate to say, my vocabulary is shot and this has been causing social anxiety. I was about to lose it when i started looking for discussions mentioning similar symptoms and to my relief I have found quite a lot of people experiencing exactly the same as me. So i want to kick this med immediately. I know it is probably unwise, but wanted to know if anyone out there has stopped using altogether (im on 100mg a day) without issues? ## Why are you taking it? What condition is being treated with it? It might not be safe for you to stop it abruptly. I think it would be best for you to consult your do...

Lamictal availability

Hi. My name is Gary. I need to find a generic form of Lamictal. My dr. says I can mail order my prescription online but the pills need to be made by Glaxo Smith Kline. These pills are super expensive maybe 600-800 per month! I know about Lamotrigine, but there are a few different manufacturers out there? Thank you to any one willing to help. ## The manufacturer should not matter as the generic substance is going to be the same no matter who makes it. ## Do not use lamotrigine manufactured by Zydus. Check the web, lots of problems. I think Teva is ok. I used to think generics were exact duplicates - Not any more! ## My doc specifically instructed the pharmacist to use any generic BUT NOT TEVA. He said it's made in Turkey or somewhere like that where regulations are more lax. He said ...

Epitec side effects

I have been taking Epitec 25mg for almost 2 weeks now and am due to start the 50mg soon. I am reluctant to do so as I have not been sleeping well since I started using using them and also have a slight headache all the time, further more I feel quite aggressive. Please tell me whether this is normal or should I discontinue to use them? regards ## Epitec contains the active ingredient Lamotrigine, this is an anticonvulsant that is also used as a mood stabilizer. The symptoms you listed are all normal side effects, you may also experience: nausea, nightmares and mouth ulcers. Side effects, however, should start to taper off, as your body gets used to the medication, but this could take several weeks and they may become more pronounced for awhile, when you increase your dosage.

Northstar Rx

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...

Lamotrigine 200 mg tab by northstar

Been on generic by Northstar for over a year then this last June 2013 I filled my rx again and within 48 hours I went thru syptoms like withdrawl. Trembling, dizzy, nauseous, weak, disoreinted, crying hysterically. This went on for several days. I even went to emergency room and was told my ct scan and blood work came back fine. This went on for a few more days. I asked pharmacy to give me a new refill because I suspected something may have been wrong with this last refill. I improved days later. Very odd. I had been stable for at least two years. Treatment bipolar. I have sent a report to Fda this week and hope that they will test that bottle I suspect might be bad. Anyone else had this problem in the last few months? ## HI, Lena! Sorry about what happened to you. Are you sure the one ...

accidental consumption of lamotrigine 100 mg with tramadol

My pharmacy mixed some ZC 80 Lamotrigine pills in with my Tramadol prescription!
