The first patent for brand-name Topamax has expired, and generic versions are now available. Manufactured by several different manufacturers of generic Topamax, including (but not limited to): Apotex Corporation; Aurobindo Pharma; Mylan Pharmaceuticals; Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Roxane Laboratories, Inc.; Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd. perhaps you could get a cheaper med from any of the listed manufacturer, hope this helps?
Talk to your doctor about helping you get into a prescription assistance program. My neurologist set me up with Johnson&Johnson Prescription Assistance Program and they pay 100% of my prescription for Topamax (not the generic because that is how my doctor put it down). Or you can call them yourself at 1-800-652-6227 for more information on eligibility and to apply. They will give you all the information you need. I hope this information helps you get your "happy pill" back. Trust me, I completely understand. It has been at least a month since I have had a headache that was so bad that I couldn't even lay my head on my pillow. Good luck!
what about walmart and walgreens? lots of times now if there is a generic form you may get it cheaper. that sucks with headaches. i have yet to find anything to work my headaches but i will look into your stuff n see if i can try it. my doc is weird about trying new stuff but its worth a shot.
