Bipolar and long- term Lamictal usage

Has anyone been on Lamictal for over 15 years and had any medical complications due to its use.... Kidney, liver, tarktive dyskinesia etc... ?

Re: Bipolar and long- term Lamictal usage

I took the drug for two or three months. I was beening treated for lower back pain by my family doctor. I NEVER had neck issues until lamictal. Now, my neck is chronically stiff, and my shoulders hurt too (along with lower back). An mri indicated degenerating of discs in my neck and back. While I don't think lamictal did the degeneration, I know it trggered something. AND NO ONE WILL LISTEN TO ME!!! My freakin' neck hurts man!!! Do you have any other info/knowledge about it?
