: have heard some good stuff about it. can anyone tell me their experience?
I have been taking Lamictal 2 or so years. In combination with Tegretol. Tegretol alone never
worked for me. I now take 500 mg Tegretol and 300 mg Lamictal.I have been seizure free for
over 8 months now. That is a record for me! I did have some side effects.
Dizzy at first, which is very comon.That went away. My balance was a little unsteady and a little
bit of twiching. Mostly at night. A rare side effect is I lost a bit of hair. I've become acustom to
the drug and these side effects have disapeared.I'm now reducing my Tegretol. Hoping the
Lamictal will work alone. I have taken many seizure medications and none of them has ever
worked. Lamictal worked for me! GOOD LUCK
