Incontinence with Lamictal
I also gained 30 pounds.
Gail M.  |  July 8, 2014
Am 57 and been on Lamictal 150mg about a year now. It helps the moods, but yes I've had incontinence with it that keeps getting worse each month. I now have to wear a maxi pad, which a year ago I didn't. I never associated it with the Lamictal till reading these posts. Thought just getting older... now I know it was the med.
Gail M.  |  July 8, 2014
Hello. I am having this issue as well.. I am on 150 mg a day. I been on it since sept.-oct. 2013... I am only 26 years old and it all started after I got on Lamictal.
heather  |  July 3, 2014
I've experienced the same. I was on 250 mg and now am down to 50. Trying to get off for various reasons.

Memory loss-Lamictal
I take 150mgs of Lamictal 1x daily & I have issues w/my memory. I haven't been on it for 4 yrs but just like MikeG333 wrote, I can't even remember how long I have been on it! Like Shaw321, my memory loss is sometimes a big source of embarrassment. I'm constantly forgetting words, i.e. I'll be in mid conversation w/someone & the word I'm looking for just WILL NOT come to me. It makes me feel so unbelievably stupid. It's even harder in a sense because I am & am known to be a very intelligent woma

I'm putting it on Lamictal. My memory loss is very marked and sometimes embarrassing. I'm taking it in stride, but considering new medication. Of course, these are all psychotropic and my all have the same result. Lamictal has been great over the years I've used it.
Shaw321  |  May 5, 2014
I think it's from bipolar too because before I ever started on any meds I still couldn't remember much before I was about 10 also. I read somewhere that taking L-Histidine helped improve memory loss when taking anti psychotics. Guess it's worth a try
