Hello and welcome. Can you tell us why he added the med? Common side effects with LAMICTAL include dizziness, headache, blurred or double vision, lack of coordination, sleepiness, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, tremor, and rash. LAMICTAL may cause other side effects not listed here. If you develop any side effects or symptoms you are concerned about, or if you need more information, call your doctor. I think the question you need answered is will these side effects subside or only continue that is why I think you need to talk to your doctor.
All of the meds come with a long list of side effects but will they wear off after an expected time period.
Please keep posting.
Thank you Karen. I asked because my Pdoc has it prescribed for me and I am scared to death to add one more med.
How long did you take the med before you stopped it and did your anxiety sx decrease when you stopped the med?
I am really freaking over this med................what to do? How I hate the anxiety. If only someone had a magic wand to fix me. I fear I am broken.
Thank you Karen. I am trying to stay in the moment but the thought of taking the Lamictal raises my anxiety. I took first doze this morning so now I pray.
