  • Jack on Sep, 6, 2014:

    I am a 72 year old male and have been taking Lamictal (for unipolar depression episodes) for over a year with no side effects. A month ago my dentist prescribed 3 ea. 500 mg tablets of Amoxicillin for 7 days. Although I had never had allergic reactions to penicillin or amoxicillin in past years, I developed a serious, widespread rash that has lasted for over a month. The rash is much better but has persisted. I believe the amoxicillin acted as a sort of catalyst in bringing on a Lamictal rash. I have now stopped the Lamictal to see if the rash disappears.
