I'm not surprised. Lamictal is a double edged sword when it comes to migraine. Some people find it helps (I've heard it helps those most who: are sensitive to MSG (glutamate) and who have migraine with aura without headache) and for others it can makes migraines much, much worse. Did the migraines start or get worse, when you started the lamictal?
Seizure control is definitely the most important thing and if it has been working then its probably worth sticking with. If you have an epileptologist that you trust, it wouldn't hurt to talk to him/her about
your migraines and see if s/he thinks its lamictal related. There are other AEDs you could use as a safety net.
