    As others experienced, I began to take Lamotrogine after taking Lamictal for 4 years. All of the progress I made was gone in a matter of a couple of weeks. It felt like I was taking a sugar pill!

So... from now on, I will be getting the name brand, and I HIGHLY recommend you all do the same.

    Comment:
    I have recently been diagnosed as being bipolar and started taking the generic medication Lamotrigine. Upon taking the first dose, I immediatlely started feeling nautious and have had more headaches than I'm used to.
