Last fall, results appeared from a trio of prospective, randomized studies that compared several generic forms of the antiepileptic drug lamotrigine against the brand-name compound, Lamictal, in patients with epilepsy.
If generic forms of lamotrigine behave indistinguishably from Lamictal, then it's very reasonable to expect that virtually any generic form of any brand name drug used in medicine is also a good mimic if it recently passed FDA muster.
This article introduces the classical fixed-effects and random-effects models in MA and uses a meta-analysis about the use of lamotrigine in bipolar disorder [6] as an example to illustrate the step-by-step implementation of MA using R, an open source statistical software package that can be freely accessed from http://www.

The children of women who took valproate had lower IQs than children exposed to carbamazepine or lamotrigine and lower DQs and IQs than children born to women who took phenytoin.
The present study is designed to study the effects of amlodipine on the threshold of electroconvulsions and on the anticonvulsant activity of lamotrigine, gabapentin and topiramate on the maximal electroshock-induced seizure model in mice.
In fact, levetiracetam provided seizure control comparable with that of older antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) carbamazepine and valproate but superior when compared with other newer AEDs, including lamotrigine and topiramate.
