I take Lamictal and Thyroxine. My doctor looks at my blood test, sees that my thyroid is high, and treats my low thyroid by lowering the Thyroxine. He brings it down - I feel terrible. His answer is to lower the dosage further. I've since raised the dosage to very high levels - I feel great!
I take Lamictal and Fortamet. I read they cause a drug interactions. I found that if I take the pills together I have side effects like dehydration, stomach problems. no energy, and nausea. The side effects lasted for about five hours after taking the Fortamet and Lamictal together. I found that if I take the pills at least two hours apart, the side effects were not so bad. I find that if I take Lamictal earlier in the day, I don't have as much a problem falling asleep.
Im 17, been on 200 mg of Lamictal for bipolar II for 3+ years. I went to my first party, had only 2 shots of vodka and i guess i blacked out. I woke up to being raped. Don't drink if youre on lamictal. please. i dont really know how to recover from this. I wish i knew that alcohol and lamictal were bad together, because this probablyl wouldnt have happened. Thanks - ck

Tegretol to Lamictal
A family relative has been using Tegretol for some time but now the side effects have worsened. Memory problems, severe drowsiness and could stay in bed 24/7, bad balance and slow slurred speech. They have now started taking some Lamictal but more Tegretol, within a month they would be totally off the Tegretol. I just want to know is Lamictal good and does switching meds cause seizures? Help
Tegretol to Lamictal
I was put on Tegretol after two seizures in February 2015, it worked fine until the side effects begun at the start of May, Memory Problems. Slurred and slow speech, bad balance, and tripping the odd time. The doctor decided last week to put me on Lamictal, I am slowly going off tegretol and by next month I will be taken 4 lamictal tablets just at night. I just wondering is changing these tablets increase seizures? Please help
I am on lamictal 150 mg for bipolar disorder and I looked this up today because the last few months I have been well let's just say so sexual and it's never enough no problem climaxing but literally I think I could have sex all day long it's really out of control glad I am not completely crazy that it is happening to other ppl too. Lol smh
I am bipolar and am on abilify and pristiq. I also take lamictal for small seizures. I was on 200 mg am and pm. I have slowly been increasing it. The first time it was increased too much too soon. I suffered flu like symptom for a month and audio and sensory hallucinations before I determined the cause (via the web.). Now the re is bloating, increased fat around torso down to thighs and irregular bowel movements. I have no weight gain to speak of just the fore mentioned. I look about 7 months pregnant. I contribute this to the lamictal.
