ok so i titrated up from 12.5 to 25 mg of lamictal last wednesday, got the rash, and immediately went back down. now my period came 10 days EARLY and it's pretty heavy. does lamictal play with hormones? or does this constitute a call to the old gyno? and it's not a miscarriage. thanks!

I'd call the doctor who prescribed it to make sure you're ok. It seems like that it a common side-effect too. I read it on a few pages. Always better to be safe though and check in with someone!

I believe that it can, the Patient Information sheet would confirm it for you, or possibly ask a pharmacist if you would feel comfortable.
