I am on my 3rd week of Lamictal - I just went to 50 MG. I have a dry, sore throat and female infection. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms and do they go away - if so how long? TIA!!!

Thanks. I went to neurologist and the primary doctor this week, and they both feel it is coincidental that I got these sx when I was upping the lamictal - they think I have a virus, so that is good news in that I don't have to go off the Lamictal. I like this drug - it is making me feel better, and would hate to change it.

As of now, I have been 9 months in Lamictal. For 5 months my dosage was = 400 mg. per day (200 in the morning and 200 at night). Starting on January 2005, my doctor increased my dosage to 200 and 250 mg = 450 mg. per day. The only side-effect that I have had is sleepiness, but no rash or other common ones. However,

Two months after I started taking Lamictal my menstrual cycles disappeared. I waited 3 months and on the fourth I decided to go to my gynecologist. Every test showed that I was doing great, no problems whatsoever and of course, I am not pregnant. Moreover, my hormone levels were great.
Still, I have not had any regular flows. I do not know what to think? My neurologist said that the chances for this to happen with Lamictal was 1 in 100 redface !! So I do not know if it's something with my feminine organs or what???
 
Has anybody had this or knows somebody who does?
 
HELP... I want to attack the root of the problem...

My symptoms turned out to be bacterial infection, I went on the Z-pack and was cured. My neuro and Primary care doc both said that the sx I was having were not related to the Lamictal, I guess they were right. I hadn't heard about the loss of TOM, but that is interesting. I did note the last one I had (first one since taking Lamictal) was lighter than normal.
