Re: Lamictal XR (Lamotrigine) for Migraines
I've been on Lamictal for a few years now. It almost completely wiped out my migraines - and is also a decent anti-depressant and mood stabilizer.
Recently, my migraines have been coming back, though not as severe as they were. I think maybe the Lamictal has stopped working. Going to consult my dr. this week.
Anyway, it has worked like a charm for me. Side effects - some agitation, anxiety, some itching. Few people get the rash, and if you do, drop it right away. For me, no bad side effects to speak of, and I can't take most medications because of side-effect sensitivity.
