  • Lamotrigine severe rash
    I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.
  • Sinuses and lamictal
    Have been having painful problems with sinuses, focal seizures have increased along with lapses of consciousness. Had the doctor take blood levels. They are normal, but feeling like this is not. Am wondering if the strange weather isn't a factor - as there is a constant fluctuation of the air pressure. Has anyone had similar problems. Would love to hear from you
  • The zoloft/vyvanse concoction ruined my life.
    I started taking these drugs about two months ago. I am diagnosed ADHD by a psychiatrist. I received these medications from a doctor whom I know and is married to a friend my wife. She, the doctor, gave them to me from her personal medications in a plastic baggy. I was given loose instructions for taking these on a piece of paper. I was never given the paperwork with warning signs. 10 days after starting these medications, I attacked my wife and am now separated. I am barred from seeing her and my daughter by means of a Victims Protective Order. I am a normally nonviolent person. Most who know me call me a peacemaker...a pacifist. I am still horrified by the events of that night. 15 seconds changed my life forever. I hope and pray my story helps others. Don't be naïve, as I was, when given medications. Ask questions.
  • Numbness and tingling in legs and feet from zyvox
    I had a staph infection 10 years ago and was hospitalized for 6 weeks. While in the hospital I was given several antibiotics intravenously, and eventually was given Zyvox. When I was released the Dr. prescribed Zyvox, and I continued to take it for about 6 months. One morning I woke up and my feet and legs were numb and tingling. I stopped taking it immediately and told my doctor. She agreed that I should have stopped taking it, and that was the last that we talked about it. I had to stop seeing the doctor because I didn't have insurance, and still don't. That was about 10 years ago!! I still have numbness and tingling in my legs and feet!!! I'm assuming it is permanent. Is there anything I can do??
  • A life of depression and fatigue (1 response)
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.

    I just stopped Lomotrigine 5 days ago. I was on it about two weeks. I started having a pinging stinging all over my body. I also started feeling like something was crawling on my skin. I'd swipe that area looking and seeing nothing. My inner being just doesn't feel right even now. Something wrong. I hope this damage to my cns will go away. I'm still experiencing some of these symptions but at much less degree. Also, I became emotionally agitated and difficult when interacting with others. I'm worried about these side effects and disappointed that this drug can't help me.

    i guess there are much more cses of tingling due to lamotrigine that people don't mention. i'm 42, taking lamotgrigine for 4 years for bipolar II, and in the past 3 months i have a disturbing facial tingling, especially when i go to bed.

    Hi everyone,
    I am 38 (Male) from NL Canada. I was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2006, having a total of luckily only 3 Seizures. First I was taking Dilantin(phenytoin). (I found this very volatile, side effects of nervousness, twitching, paranoia[with too much medication]) The second resulted from being negligent and missing medication. And the third as a result of changing medication to Lamotrigine. Incorrect mix of medication duing the change.
    That was the background. After being on lamotrigine, I have been doing well and seizure free for two years. The only side effects that I have are drowsiness after taking the medication.
    And developed a sign of fuzzy brain and minor numbness in the fingures and left side of face. I guess from the above calculation I am the first person with the numbness under 30 according to the study.
    Is there anyone having the same symptoms and is the a treatment.
