  • Reviewed Lamictalon 12/3/2016It's not known for weight gain, but coincidentally I have gained weight since taking. I'm not certain if it is due to Lamictal

  • Reviewed Lamictalon 7/5/2015Doctors don't tell you it causes double vision. Also can cause fuzzy thinking at higher doses- sometimes called "Lamictal Stupid."

  • Reviewed Lamictalon 11/13/2015It saved my life...but titrate slowly. Too high = what I call "woo woo's"; cerebral palsy-like symptoms (full body jerks, almost seizure like but fully aware & able to communicate).

  • Reviewed Lamictalon 11/23/2015Weirdest/best side effect from any medicine goes to Lamictal - for the first couple weeks I had really intense and vivid movie-like dreams. It gives me horrible headaches but I take it before bed so I sleep through it.

  • Reviewed Lamictalon 1/8/2016At 200mg, I developed some really nasty forehead acne and my skin was extremely oily, even with cleaning 2x/day and retin-a. I finally saw a dermatologist who mentioned he's had patients suffer from lamictal-induced acne...not just a rash.

  • Reviewed LamictalIncrease dose slowly as doctor recommended. Do not go more than 12 to 18 hours with out taking one. I always say if you feel anything at all, drowsiness, restlessness or worse depression, then your dose is not correct.
