Lamictal for bi-polar

I started on Lamictal 1 week ago and I've noticed my urine is really dark. Should I be concerned? Has anyone had an y experiences with this as well?

Re: Lamictal for bi-polar

Your Dr. is the best person to answer this question as he/she knows you personally. So definitely ask your Dr.

But I'm not on Lamictal, I'm on Tegretol and Risperidal and from time to time I have noticed darker urine. The body has a way of doing away with whatever it doesn't need which can result in darker urine. Sometimes in the past I have even noticed darker urine from a multivitamin! But I've never noticed darker urine continuously...just at the beginning of starting the meds, then every so often. I try to drink lots of water and that seems to result in a lighter color for most of the day.
