    Been taking it for 4 or more years, I was just mailed a generic version of it. The generic may contain the therapeutic ingredient, but I bet it is released quicker than done by the name. This change was was without my knowledge.

    This is the only drug that I have used to treat bipolar disorder. I had been misdiagnosed as having severe depression prior to that. I have been taking it for at least 10 years with great success. My 14 year old son now also takes it with amazing results. Same drugs work well in same families. ALWAYS try that first.
