    Can a change in generic lamictal manufacturer cause bad side effects?

    I take lamotrigine 150mg twice daily for the last 3 years. My most recent refill had a different look, so I'm assuming a different manufacturer.this wouldn't be the first time, but it had never had a different effect. This time I immediately noticed strong side effects which I had not experienced before. They are bad enough that I cant drive or go to work after taking them. Is it possible that the change in manufacturer could have caused this?

    I have 4 children. Years ago one of my kids was admitted to a psych hospital. Through therapy I find out that my 12year old molested my baby girl who is 10years younger than her.

I found out recently....

    I don’t know if Im bipolar or not

    I’m a 19 year old female and have been struggling for a long time. I’ve always had anxiety, with on and off depression in the more recent years. I was almost abducted a month ago while I was walking my dog, and the stress and scariness of the incident has also brought on the anxiety and panic attacks I sometimes get. I get so angry sometimes for no reason and I want to punch a wall or something. I act out and make bad decisions without regard of the consequences. Then I get sad out of nowhere and....
