Best Answer

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**

How long will it take for lamictal caused acne to go away?

The best thing you can do is decide whether the acne is bad enough to warrant you to stop taking it all together. If you decide that the benefits of Lamictal outweigh the disadvantages then you need to treat the acne. Accutane [strongest anti acne med] is derived from vitamin A, it is widely known that vitamin A is responsible for healthy skin. Retinyl Palmitate is a VERY active and READILY absorbed form of Vitamin A, it is also a very potent form of vitamin A. I suggest you take this as it will reduce your acne, it worked for me.

Why does acne grow?

Acne can develop for a number of reasons. The main reason acne develops is because a person is genetically more likely to have acne. This still isn't enough to cause it though. That person must also be eating and drinking certain foods that will cause acne. In certain people dairy and sugar can cause acne. Cutting these foods out can reduce or stop acne completely. A book called acne no more goes into detail about food and acne. Ultimately you need to remove these foods from your diet, else you will suffer with acne.
