If you were taking 25 mg per day of Lamictal and it was increased to 150 mg per day would this cause very bad itching on your sides upper arms and your eyes?

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.

Many patients complain of itching when taking narcotics. Talk to your prescriber about options.

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.

It is unusual for Ativan to cause itching. But any drug can cause allergic reactions including itching. You better consult your physician.

Can Lamictal or depakote cause false positive screening for opiates? I am not sure about it testing positive for opiates; however, Lamictal will show a positive reading on a PCP test. Until recently it was believed to be otherwise. I will provide the documented information and studies in a follow-up post.
