strange Lamictal symptom

I was wondering if anyone had a wierd kina of "mouth numbness"? It's the only way I can explain it. Someone I know said it might be an allergic reaction but I don't know for sure.
Also, now there is a generic for it and it seems worse with that. Along with appetite changes and my throat it really dry.

Re: strange Lamictal symptom

I've been on Lamictal for close to 10 years, and I've never experienced that. Is it listed as a common side affect in the printout that your pharmacist gave you? I would try googling it, and also asking your doc.

Re: strange Lamictal symptom

I don't take Lamictal, but I do take Topamax, and the numbness and drymouth (among other things) are side effects for that, for me.
A quick search showed me that dry mouth is listed as a fairly common side effect, though, although I think it's often listed as a fairly common side effect on most medications.

It makes me think better it control my seizures and the only thing is that i have kinda dry mouth, i barely taste the food i could eat it, but is like if i am eating nothing cause i dont know how it taste and also it makes me really thirsty... but besides that topamax its a great med ask your doctor to let u try it...

Re: strange Lamictal symptom

Hey. I have had Epilepsy for the last 7 years. For the last 3 years I have been on Lamictol. It started at 50mg Now I am on 400Mg. They are controlling the GM Seizures but Ive been having other seizure types since taking Lamictol, which are like Panic Attacks at the start where I feel really Scared, Nervous but then I don't remember anything for the 3-4 minutes it lasts. Im dazed after. Anyway last week my doc but me up to 400mg and said it's a new type of Seizure, but Im wondering is what Im experiencing a side effect of the Lamictol? Any Ideas? These attacks are riuning my life and I get so embarrased.
