  • Weirdest/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.

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

  • Has changed my life in evening out my mood- no hypo mania but kind of miss feeling more motivated. Have trouble initiating and have to take a lot of countering supplements to deal with fuzzy brain. Worsening soluble vision is a problem.

  • It 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).

  • At 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.

  • Itchiness is a common side effect. Still be on the lookout of the worse, life threatening Stevens-Johnson rash.

  • Wish I'd known how much better my life would be on this med.

  • At a high dose (400mg) this made me feel...stupid. It was hard to think and even form sentences and I ended up back at 200mg. Since you have to titrate so slow, it was a rough couple of months but lamictal has saved my life!
