Rash and itching are some of the possible side effects of Lamictal. If you truly have problems with your eyes, or if the rash has become severe, it is important to see a physician since there are possible severe reactions to this and other medications. A dose of 25 mg of Lamictal is very low and is generally just a starting dose; we often increase the dose slowly to help reduce side effects and help improve how well the medication is tolerated, but some people do have problems with medications despite this. Hope this helps! Dr. B.

Is PCP in Lamictal?

No. PCP is not in Lamictal (or any other medication in its class, for that matter). However, Lamictal can cause a false positive for PCP in a urine test. You really must disclose Lamictal when taking a urine test (such as pre-employment screening). According to HIPPA, the lab is not supposed to notify the company of any legitimate meds you are taking, so you should be able to keep your medical condition private.

Does Lamitrogine Lamictal cause acne?

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**
