Headaches and Lamictal

Hi guys...my doc just increased my dosage of lamictal up to 100 mg/day yesterday and man oh man I have had the worst headache since I woke up this morning. I've taken 14 advils throughout the course of the day and it doesn't even phase it. I know that's excessive, but I'm in so much pain!!! Anyone else have this problem with lamictal??? Maybe it's unrelated to the meds, but I'm curious to hear some feedback.

Robin

Re: Headaches and Lamictal

Robin,
When my doc first put me on Lamictal he warned me that one side effect could be headaches. Since I was taking Topamx at the time for headaches, I was less than thrilled. I was on Topamax for a year since starting the Lamictal, and when I came off the topamax, I only had a few headaches. Which makes me wonder if the headaches will go away once you are on Lamictal for awhile.
Sorry about your pain!

Re: Headaches and Lamictal

I am on Lamictal also and seem to have a headache everyday. I hadn't connected the two as my Pdoc didn't mention this as a side effect. But I am very tired of headaches.
