Lamotrigine Overview

Lamotrigine, sold as the brand name Lamictal among others, is an anticonvulsant medication used to treat epilepsy and to delay or prevent the recurrence of depressive episodes in bipolar disorder.[3] For epilepsy, this includes focal seizures, tonic-clonic seizures, and seizures in Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.[3] In bipolar disorder, lamotrigine has not been shown to reliably treat acute depression; but for patients with bipolar disorder who are not currently sympt...

White round pill with L122 on one side and a line on the other

Please help me ID this pill. Is it Clonazepam? I have multiple seizures and I save one to stop having one. To take if a seizure starts, he tells me to take this med. ## This tablet contains 100mgs of Lamotrigine, which is an anticonvulsant, but this one is usually taken regularly as a preventative, not to stop a seizure that's already started. (NDC 16714-372) Inactive ingredients: - Lactose Monohydrate - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato - Povidone - Magnesium Stearate - Talc Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, mood signs and weight changes. ## It is lamotrigine, be careful. It is highly dangerous if not monitored by a doctor. It is a slow progression to regulate the MG in the body. It is a medicine taken daily on a schedule. ## Is this drug considered to be a controlle...

side effects of epitec

I am bipolar 2 or so they say. I have been taking epiec 200 and rispadol. I have lost the will to live without the depression of course and i have become an angry horrible person that no one can be around. I have shakes in the head and tiredness that is so not me. I have started to reducing the meds and is on 50 now. I am feeling much better and the old me is returning. Why do people think epitec is such a wonder drug? ## Epitec contains the active ingredient Lamotrigine. Risperdal contains the active ingredient Risperidone. That said, they can both cause the types of effects you experienced and this may have been compounded if you were taking them both at the same time. Have you spoken to your doctor about this problem? ## My daughter has been on Epitec for months now. She started with...

Northstar Rx

Has anyone had problems with lamotrigine (generic Lamictal) manufactured by Northstar Rx ## My pharmacy changed my Teva brand of Lamotrigine to North Star brand. Has anyone noticed a difference with the difference switching brands? ## Yes. I take lamotrigine for bi-polar depression. I have found that the Northstar version of the drug doesn't work. I took it and my mood crashed. Then I got back on the Teva made lamotrigine, and my mood stabilized. I believe the Northstar product in effective. Try to get your prescribing physician to write "Teva - DAW" on your script. ## My original Hyzaar was refilled by mail with Losartan Hctz 100 by Northstar and I think I'm having serious side effects that I just now attribute to the bp med. My legs are cramping; hip joints hurt; panti...

Effects of Lamotrigene

Last June I started coming off Lamotrigine. I was on 125mg per day to stabilize my moods. I suffer from anxiety, depression, ocd, bpd, It did help at the start and pushed me to do things, but then it would wear off and I was told to keep increasing, but it started to affect my liver, my depression got worse, sweating, jewelry going black, and a few other things and I wanted to come off it. I slowly decreased it but as I was I started to get the shakes, upper torso and hands. The psychiatrist put me on Zyprexa to help with the withdrawals and also Benztropine for the shaking/tremours. I was having too many suicidal thoughts so I came off Zyprexa, but I still had the shakes. The doctor then put me on Valdoxan (Antidepressant) but that ended up putting me on the couch and I couldn't do...

lemectol

I have just developed epilepsy and am in my 40's. I have been put on lemectol and have been taking a theraputic dose for several months. Originally I had headaches but they seem to have gone away.

I am experiencing loss of balance or unsteadiness, a sort of dizziness, terrible hot flashes or night sweats sometimes 4-5 times a night. Right now as I right this I am loosing my balance at my computor. I am also having a hot flash at this minute. This has all occurred in the last week despite being on it for months. I also have cloudy urine. My question is has anyone experienced symptoms this dramatic and did they go away.

Teva Lamotrigine (93 463) Availability

The CVS pharmacy I have been filling my prescription at told me that Teva will no longer manufacture Lamotrigine (pill imprint: 93 463). Is this correct? I've tried other mfgs and I still had seizures and I immediately knew I should buy Teva. I have less than 10 pills left now. ## CVS lies a lot. Just filled at Walgreens with teva brand..CVS told me they cold not get .5mg clonazapam anymore also.. I switched all to Walgreens... ## after doing extensive research I found out Teva and Mylan will no longer manufacturer Lamotrigine. I have not tolerated the other generic brands.

Wrongfully diagnosed with extreme side effects

Long story short, my wife was wrongfully diagnosed with bipolar and was put on Lamotrigine. She had weird side effects on and off while she titrated up. Eventually got to where she and her “doctor” thought was good for her at 100mg. Well something happened and her side effects got awful. Here’s a list of what I compiled: Starts talking slow and spacey Trouble breathing Loses strength and control of body Nausea Panicky Hallucinations Oscillopsia Body convulses / twitches Stutters / trouble speaking Body tensing and convulsing like being electrocuted We call them episodes At this point we knew she wasn’t supposed to be on it and another so called doctor told her she can stop at any time cold turkey WRONG we did and the withdrawal side effects are just as bad My que...

is epitec 50 the same as epilim 500

I use epilin cr 500. Is it the same as epitec 50? My doctor changed it so I want to know if I can use it. ## I am taking 300 mg epitec for bipolar disorder. Can I take epilim instead ## Hello Frikkie, I wasn't able to pull up much information on the epitec 50 but I was able to see that it's main active ingredient is Lamotrigine where as the Epilim 500 contains the active ingredient sodium valproate. This means that the two medications are not the same, however, they are both used to treat the same conditions. These medications are both used to treat epilepsy and mental conditions with episodes of overactivity, elation or irritability. These medications may be prescribed to individuals with bipolar disorders. I hope this information helps. Let me know if there is anything else I ...
