Frequently asked questions about Lamotrigine

Lamotrigine (generic for Lamictal) is a prescription drug used to treat epilepsy and bipolar disorder.

Epilepsy, sometimes known as seizure disorder, is a condition that causes frequent, unprovoked seizures and loss of awareness. According to the Epilepsy Foundation, epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder and can affect people of all ages.

Bipolar disorder is also caused by disturbances in brain activity, which can cause severe mood swings and “manic” episodes of extremely high energy or depression. Bipolar disorder affects nearly 3 million Americans every year, and may last for your whole life.

Lamotrigine has been approved by the FDA to help treat these conditions by balancing activity in the brain. Talk to your provider about lamotrigine is right for you.

Lamotrigine is prescribed to treat epilepsy and bipolar disorder.

Researchers are not entirely certain how lamotrigine works in the brain to prevent seizures and mood changes related to bipolar disorder is largely unknown. From clinical studies, it is believed that lamotrigine reduces electrical disturbances in the brain and central nervous system, which can help prevent seizures. It does this by inhibiting sodium channels, which contribute to the electrical disturbances mentioned above. By blocking these channels, lamotrigine stabilizes synaptic currents and electric activity in the brain. Regardless, though, lamotrigine is a safe, effective way to keep epilepsy and bipolar disorder under control.

While there are some common side effects associated with lamotrigine, it is important to remember that your doctor prescribed this medication because its ability to keep your migraines under control outweighs any adverse side effects it may cause.

You will start to notice the effects of lamotrigine within several weeks after starting treatment. Lamotrigine’s dosage is usually increased very slowly to prevent serious side effects. Because of this, it can take a while before you start to notice it working.

Do not discontinue use of lamotrigine or increase your dosage without consulting your doctor. Overdose of lamotrigine can cause serious adverse effects, including death. Similarly, suddenly stopping your dosage can cause symptoms of withdrawal, including severe seizures. Continue taking lamotrigine even if you feel well, and report any side effects you may experience to your doctor.

Lamotrigine’s dosage is typically increased throughout treatment to prevent side effects. The most common starting dose of lamotrigine is a 25 mg oral tablet meant to be taken once or twice daily. As treatment continues, this dosage is increased to 100, 150, and 200 mg depending on the needs of the patient.

Because lamotrigine is administered gradually, it may take some time before you begin to notice its effects. Do not increase the dose, unless directed by your doctor. Similarly, do not discontinue use of lamotrigine, even if you feel well. Suddenly stopping lamotrigine treatment can lead to serious side effects, including withdrawal seizures.
