What is Lamictal, and how does it work?

Lamictal is a prescription known as an antiepileptic drug (AED). It is FDA-approved to treat bipolar disorder and epilepsy. It is also considered a mood stabilizer.

  • Find stability: By regulating brain chemicals, lamotrigine can help manage mood swings and other bipolar disorder symptoms so that you can find stability.

  • Relief from anxiety and depression: Lamictal can also ease symptoms of anxiety and depression by stabilizing mood from "below baseline" levels. This can reduce unease and improve well-being.

  • Effective epilepsy prevention: Lamictal calms erratic brain activity, reducing the frequency and intensity of seizures.

For most people, Lamictal takes approximately six weeks to start working properly.

  • Bipolar disorder

    Lamictal helps reduce feelings of excitability, over-activity, and mood swings to help individuals manage the symptoms of bipolar disorder. Our trusted doctors are able to help refill effective, evidence-based medications for bipolar disorder. Please note that if you are concerned about a diagnosis of bipolar, it is recommended to establish care with a psychiatrist as well to properly manage that condition.*

    Other medication options include:

  • Epilepsy

    Our physicians can also help refill appropriate medications for seizures. Please note that if you are concerned about or have a history of a seizure disorder or epilepsy, it is recommended that you seek care from a board-certified neurologist to manage any seizure-related conditions.* Other options to treat epilepsy include:

    *Please note that PlushCare does not have psychiatrists or neurologists at this time. However, our physicians can help patients with mental health conditions and refill medications for bipolar disorder or epilepsy following a qualifying evaluation.

Lamictal (lamotrigine) side effects

Lamotrigine symptoms are typically mild and often associated with headache and dizziness. Other side effects may include:

  • Blurred vision or double vision

  • Loss of coordination

  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea

  • Sore throat or runny nose

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Stiff neck or muscle pain

More severe but less common side effects could include:

  • Fast, slow, or fluttering heartbeat

  • Chest pain or difficulty breathing

  • Flu-like symptoms, such as fever and swollen lymph nodes

  • Allergic reactions

If you drink alcohol while taking lamotrigine, you may experience an increased risk of nervous system side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating.

Lamotrigine therapy can cause an increased risk of a life-threatening, serious rash (called Stevens–Johnson syndrome). Contact your doctor immediately or call your local poison control center if you experience an unusual or allergic reaction, skin rash, blistering or peeling, or painful sores.

Taking anticonvulsant medication can also increase suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Tell your doctor if your mental health symptoms worsen while taking lamotrigine.

How to take Lamictal

Our doctors will provide you with directions on how to take Lamictal. Lamotrigine is typically taken once or twice daily, starting at a low dose of medication that is slowly increased over several weeks. The usual dose ranges from 25 mg to 400 mg.

Do not stop taking this medication suddenly, even if you start feeling better. If you miss a dose, take the next dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose and follow your regular dosing schedule if it's almost time for your next dose. Always consult your doctor for personalized medical advice.

Drugs not to take with Lamictal may include:
