Someone one told us tht there lamotrigine (which is not a sulfa ddrug) is put in a sulfa base, is that true.

I've only been on the pill three days, and it is just wrecking me up. I'm going to the doctor TODAY. I was in JC Penny yesterday, and had to run to the Salon Section, and BEG for them to let me use some aloe vera, from the burning in my hands [[it looks like I burned my hands, they are so red]]. I don't recommend this pills, there were too many unsatisfied users when I had looked it up after my doctor prescribed it to me.
