I'm glad to hear that you are home and doing better. What a nightmare! It's amazing how one person can take a medication and it works wonders for them with absolutely no side effects at all. Most people seem to have such good results with Lamictal. I could not tolerate it. It made me dizzy, very forgetful to the point that I would get off the phone and could not remember who I had just talked to. I had to really concentrate and focus only on trying to remember who I had just talked to and I would finally remember the phone call. Lamictal also made me very nauseous. It got to the point that I didn't have to stand up to get dizzy, I got dizzy just sitting on the sofa. My gosh, you have had it so much worse. That's a pretty serious reaction for them to keep you in the hospital that long. Thank goodness you got yourself to the hospital. Please keep us posted.
