The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced Thursday that generic forms of Topamirate (aka Topamax) manufactured by 17 different companies have been approved for distribution in the United States.

Generic Topamirate Wins FDA Approval

The availability of generic Topamirate is excellent news for all the patients who successfully use Topamax for migraine prevention and for all those who will be able try it for prevention without spending an arm and a leg for a name brand version.

From what I can tell by reading through related news releases, generic forms should be available right away.
