Question Lamictal Mouth Sores?

Hello again,

It's always something with me and my meds. I'm wondering, what does a mouth sore from Lamictal look like?

I have two canker sores on my gums, way to deep to be caused by my teeth, etc.

Thanks!

Re: Lamictal Mouth Sores?

I can't tell you what a canker sore caused by Lamicatal looks like, but I do know this: any rash around a "mucous membrane" (ie your mouth) needs to be taken extemely seriously while on Lamictal. If those sores don't heal soon or if you get more of them, you need to see a doctor ASAP (like yesterday!).

Re: Lamictal Mouth Sores?

I had planned to go to my doctor, but the earliest I can get there is Friday. The cankers just showed up yesterday, so will I be okay to wait until the weekend?

Hi,

I think you might call and explain to the receptionist the danger of the rash and ask them to squeeze you in sooner, or at least put you on a cancellation list.

I hope it's not the rash, and good luck getting in sooner.

If you haven't developed more of them, Friday is probably fine. If you have gotten more, insist on being seen.
