Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • I also have been having greasy stools. I never took any of the above listed medications together. I was allergic to both lamictal and risperidone. The stomach pain is localized to the upper left quadrant of my stomach, and hurts when I push where my pancreas is. The pain is made worse after eating or drinking coffee.

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • Lamictal is taken twice daily. Benadryl is taken occasionally, usually before bed. On one occasion it was taken during the day and an onset of severe drowsiness and possible low blood pressure ensued.
