I loved lamictol, while I was on it I was alert and lost weight. It gave me a rash. I was so disappointed.
If you go on it start with a low dose. Increase lamictol slowly like once a month , you shouldn't have much of a problem. It might bring on dry skin , most pple use cetaphil soap and cream.
Wishing you the best of luck ,its a great med when your not one who rejects everything.
