    this medication made me feel dead inside. the use of the drug caused my monthly periods to become highly irregular.i highly suggest trying other treatments before using Lamictal if possible.

    Given for Bipolar on two different occasions. Niether of which showed any results in treating the condition. Also, may have possibly caused worse symptons to an organ. Be careful when using this medication, get frequent Liver Function Tests as well as other blood tests to make sure normal health is not compromised.

    Helped me very much with Bipolar Type II NOS. Tried many others. Some impact on memory and word finding, but would rather be much happier and a little dumber than the opposite!

    I took Lamictal for 2 weeks at the lowest dose and developed the rash commonly caused by the drug.

I also developed them on my back and chest.
