Though some individuals do not experience or notice any problems while they are on lamotrigine, also known as Lamictal, many others complain of a wide variety of side effects. Some of the most common lamotrigine adverse effects include nausea, coordination problems, and dizziness. Side effects less common which have been found to occur in 5% or less of individuals include neck pain, speech problems, and sinus infection. It is very important to talk with a healthcare provider immediately if you encounter any side effects or other problems from this drug that just “don’t seem right”. Lamotrigine side effects treatment can help to clear up any problems that may be occurring.

Serious lamotrigine side effects – some antipsychotic side effects are possibly very serious even if they occur infrequently and need to be reported to a medical professional as soon as possible. Serious side effects of lamotrigine can include but aren’t limited to: lamotrigine overdose, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, worsening of seizures, any unusual bleeding or bruising, symptoms of liver damage including yellow skin or eyes (jaundice), and symptoms of aseptic meningitis including headaches, chills and fever, vomiting and nausea, a lamotrigine rash, stiff neck, confusion or drowsiness, frequent infections, severe muscle pain, and sensitivity to light. Our lamotrigine side effects help techniques are capable of handling adverse effects with medical supervision.

Lamotrigine medication side effects can also include symptoms of dangerous allergic reactions to the drug, such as: any rash or hives, fever, swollen glands (swollen “lymph nodes”), painful sores around or inside the eyes or mouth, and swelling of the tongue or lips. Side effects of this drug can include serious allergic reactions and lamotrigine rashes. These rashes may cause a large section of skin to die or can cause disfigurement and even death. The most common side effects of this drug are as follows: dizziness, which occurs in up to 54% of medication users, double vision in up to 49%, headaches in up to 29%, coordination problems in up to 28%, blurred vision and nausea in up to 25%, and vomiting in up to 20%. Using lamotrigine and alcohol together at the same time is also considered a side effect that can be potentially serious depending on the amount that is consumed of each substance, and other factors.

Other common side effects of this med, which occur in 5 to 20% of individuals who take this medication, include: runny or irritated nose, drowsiness, cough, stomach pain (abdominal pain), sore throat, insomnia, tremor (shakiness), weakness, fatigue, back pain, flu-like symptoms including chills and body aches, heartburn or indigestion, painful menstrual cramps, diarrhea, bronchitis, fever, dry mouth, constipation, weight loss, and chest pain. Ultimately, the only way to eliminate side effects completely is to end use of the medication. This should only be done under professional medical guidance so as to lessen any antipsychotic withdrawal side effects. Our lamotrigine side effects treatment includes medical supervision and substantially decreases lamotrigine withdrawal effects.

Our treatment program employs the following techniques to successfully withdrawal from antipsychotic medications. Lab testing for what the causes of original symptoms may be. Usually toxicity is found as the culprit and so we focus on clearing toxins out the individual’s body. Sugar and processed food is restricted and supplements are used that offer support to inhibitory aspects of neurochemistry. 

Our program is also aimed at supporting the neurochemistry by use of natural substances, body detoxification to remove accumulated environmental neurotoxins, targeted nutritional therapies such as IV amino therapy, peer support, personal exercise training, yoga, massage, and other therapies to combat side effects. We are inviting you to call us and talk, and obtain an idea about the type of lamotrigine side effects help that is available.
