Are you talking about Dilantin? You didn't name the medication but it is listed in your groups. Dilantin is one of those tricky drugs that it can make a difference when you switch brands or go to generic from brand name or vice versa once you are stabilized. It is recommended that if you are stabilized on the brand name you should stay with the brand name. Talk to your healthcare professional who prescribes the medication. If you are having trouble with cost there are some resources that help like copay assisstance and discount cards that are available. If you have insurance call the insurance company to see if you have a Case Manager available to you and they can help you find those resources.
