Re: Autism and Seizure Activity

My daughter is 13, has Asperger's and takes Lamictal for mood disorder NOS. She's had no problems with it and it has worked wonderfully for our purpose. The key is to increase slowly and of course do not continue giving the drug if you see a rash until it's been checked by your doctor. There has been recent news about an increased chance of aseptic meningitis with Lamictal as well, but it's important to note that while miserable, aseptic meningitis is not the fatal kind of meningitis you hear about on the news and 49 cases out of the hundreds of thousands of people who use the drugs is pretty rare.

Good luck with your decision.
