Re: Lamictal side effects

Melissa, "full seizure control" is something that we would like, but are told not to expect. In reality, it is RARE. I had very good control for a number of years, I could even drive. However I stress don't expect "full control". There is good control, and "rare seizures". However, we still have epilepsy (it doesn't go away). We may still have "breakthrough seizures" from time to time even on the best treatment.

I don't know if you can understand that fully without having epilepsy, but it is what I see as reality.

Does that help you understand at all?
