Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • If I have "phenomenas" and take my dose (400mg in Am, 400mg Pm)a little to early I will get very dizzy where I am still spinning with my eyes close. It does go away, but I would rather be dizzy then have a seizure.
    I have noticed over the last 2 years (aprox 5 years after being on lamotrigine) that I get a sporatic hiccup that comes out. It is usually just one and I never have a hiccuping fit. A nurse that I know said it could be from the drugs. I don't take any other prescription medication and most of the time am not eating or doing anything that could disturb my esophagus.
    I do get auras early in the morning even if it's before my dosage time. Sometimes I will take an extra pill (very sporadic) and it seems to help.
