    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.

    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.

    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.
