What Is Lamictal XR?
Lamictal XR (lamotrigine) is prescribed to treat people 13 years of age and over who have seizure disorders or bipolar disorder. It is considered a first-line treatment for tonic-clonic seizures and as an alternative or adjuvant medication for partial seizures. It is one of only a few medications found to be effective in treating Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a form of epilepsy characterized by drop attacks.
Lamictal XR is an extended release medication that comes in different strengths (25-mg, 100-mg, 150-mg, 200-mg, 250-mg, and 300-mg) to be taken by mouth, with or without food, once daily.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Both epilepsy and bipolar disorder can pose serious challenges in navigating daily life. People who experience seizures can experience physical injuries due to a sudden loss of consciousness. Those living with bipolar disorder may have difficulty functioning effectively academically or professionally and often feel socially stigmatized. Unfortunately, medications that provide symptomatic relief can cost hundreds of dollars per month if not covered by insurance, and even well-insured patients can find their out-of-pocket costs unaffordable.
On the bright side, there are Lamictal patient assistance programs that can help with the cost, though many who would benefit from them may not be aware such programs exist. Simplefill is working hard to change that. We not only raise awareness about patent assistant programs. We also serve as a bridge connecting people in need of help to pay for the costly medications they rely on to manage chronic diseases like epilepsy and bipolar disorder with the programs designed to provide assistance.
How Does Lamictal XR Work?
Lamictal XR works through a complex series of chemical interactions in the brain that slow down the electrical signals that cause seizures. For people with bipolar disorder, decreasing the intensity of the brain’s electrical activity prevents or delays recurrent and relapsing episodes of mood change.
