I had been on lamictal for a year, for BP. I decided recently to go off it because of cost, being on a bunch more medications that I feel do more to help than the lamictal. I was on 400mg. So I went off it cold turkey for 6 days, but the withdrawal felt like too much to deal with at a busy time in life. Nothing to do with my mood, my mood was fine off it.. just actual physical issues like headaches, foggy, numbness etc.
Anyways, so I went back on (start on half the dose, to build back up in fear of the SJS). However, I feel itchy all over now. Mainly my arms, extremities and sometimes my face area. Now, I am not sure if I am reacting to the idea of SJS, so I am psychosomatic and noticing normal dry skin as something to be worried about
, or if the itching is more than that. Is this something I should be wasting my time to go to the hospital to check-out, or should I wait and see if something else happens?
