  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • All of the symptoms listed as recovered are symptoms characteristic of a reaction to my lamotrigine when taken without enough food, except the headache. All of the stomach symptoms listed as not recovered are NOT characteristic of this reaction, except the dizziness and lightheadedness, which is. However, they are continuing intermittently without the medication, which is unusual. I am concerned that the stomach symptoms may be a rare side effect of lamotrigine, acute pancreatitis. I know that this is a very rare side effect, but my dad had severe lamotrigine-related acute pancreatitis this summer, which makes me concerned that I might have a similar propensity.
