I was wondering same thing- I have been getting acne since taking lamitrogine. Me too. I take 200mg and since I increased it from 100mg about a month ago, my acne has gotten worse. It's not just acne because I took Accutane (strongest acne medicine available) 8 years ago and haven't had any acne until now. If you are suffering from acne as a result to Lamictal the first thing you need to do is decide whether it is bad enough to stop taking Lamictal all together. If it is not you should look at different ways to deal with the acne you have like taking 15000 IU of Reinyl Palmitate.

**My roommate in college thought she was getting acne when she began taking lamitrogine but it was the dangerous rash that they warn you about when starting lamitrogine--it looked a lot like acne so be careful and see a doctor**
