Hi! I take Keppra and Lamictal, and my neurologist will only write prescriptions for brand only. The new generics have different fillers which are not metabolized the same way the brand meds are. Some people have had problems with breakthrough seizures on the generics. Even though I have health insurance, I am paying a lot for these two meds. My health insurance uses Caremark. (Caremark mail order won't accept any manufacturers coupons.) I just appealed the cost of the brand drugs, but lost the appeal. I am paying between $860 and $960 for Keppra (750 mg) and Lamictal (100 mg), respectively, for a 3 month supply. This does not include what my insurance kicks in. My husband and I have priced both drugs online at Canadian pharmacies, and found we could save a lot of money on Lamictal. I am also planning on seeing if my neuro. will prescribe Keppra XR for me.
Has anyone else gotten their medicines from Canada? If so, what has been your experience? Thanks!
