I have been on Keppra myself, 1500 mg a day, since March, and my neurologist just today is switching me over to Lamictal since it's better for pregnancy, and we're thinking of getting pregnant next summer or around there. He told me that the rash that can happen from Lamictal is quite serious, and that it can possibly lead to a syndrome where the rash can get bad enough to need treatment at a burn center.
So what did the doctor say then? I notice that the posts were made at the end of last month, so I'm anxious to hear a response from you if you still check this board, since I'll be starting on it myself today. I hope all went okay, and that things got better for you.
