Was it necessarily Lamictal causing hives that went away four days after discontinuing use if you were taking Keflex for infection after minor surgery at the same time as the Lamictal?

Though most patients handle Lamictal well, hives is one of the
potential side-effects of Lamictal, and you should call your doctor
immediately if you experience hives. You should not discontinue
taking the medication without letting your doctors know. There can
be other serious side-effects of quitting the medication
cold-turkey. Although hives are associated with a reaction to
Lamictal, there is always a possibility that they may have been
caused by something else.
