From this study (1 year ago):
I have been on 100mg of Lamictal for over a year, and Adderall 30mg for over two years and three days ago I started having a sharp pain in the bottom right side of my skull and rapid eye movement only when I closed my right eye. Then yesterday, I started to feel like my the right corner of my mouth and some of my cheek were numb (like when you go to the dentist and they numb your mouth) then that corner started to twitch and and then the whole cheek started to convulse and then my jaw was uncontrollable and felt detached from my face and then my head was uncontrollable. The ER doctor believes that it is caused by Lamictal. I did not want to stop taking it until I see my psychiatrist but today, I have absolutely no systems that is why I am questioning if the is because of Lamictal? Any ideas
Cori on Apr, 10, 2013:
It sounds more like Fifth's disease to me and not so much the lamictal. Try to see your psych ASAP or at least get a phone call in. It shouldn't hurt to stop taking the lamictal for a few days to see if the symptoms go away. Those are severe symptoms and outweigh any benefits of the drug but it seems odd to develop those symptoms now after being on it so long. I am not a medical professional so please follow drs orders until this is straightened out. There are many other drugs that can be effective if the lamictal is the issue. Good luck and let us know what happens.
