I had a dreadfull night last night.

I have always had a allergie for dust - dust mites, since i was a tiny tot. Live in a thatch roof at home but always away at vasity so haven't been home for a while.

Get all itchy and and puffy, but nothing too serious. Often take celestimine cause of it.

Took some last night at about ten o'clock. And was actually here.

At about eleven thirty it went to shit.

I had also taken rivitrol abit earlier a little after the celestimine.

Had anaphylaxis, something totally new to me. Couldn't breath, face was so swollen i couldn't see, swollen lips tongue and the whole thing. had the most scary rash everywhere, got rushed to the er, doctor made me feel super good, as he said well at lest you didn't go into cardiac arrest.

The rash was blood red and all raised off the skin and looked like blisters.

Live in the middle of nowhere, rather rural hopital was about 40minutes away and not that good.

Doctor was a student doctor.

Was totally terrifying.

I still look a little asian with way to much botox. (no offence to anyone, its just I'm really blonde and english - so i can't recognise myself) Rash has gone down though this morning.

I can't believe its just dust as its never happened before and seemed rather hectic for dust?? I worried if its got anything to do with my meds. (its sunday too)

I also recently had a mix up with my lamictal over the last two weeks.

I take 200mg. I started taking 2 x 100mg, then changed to 1 x 200mg. Daft me suddenly got it mixed up, and think i've been taking 400mg. Which is a huge jump to say the lest.

Don't know if the combo with celestime did it. or if it was an allergic reaction. my pdoc is 18hours away as i'm on vacation, there isn't even a good gp.

Little freaked out.

What an absolute nightmare Ash!

From what I've read on Stevens-Johnson Syndome (the "lamictal rash"), it usually starts with upper respiratory tract flu-like symptoms (sore throat, cough, etc) for a few days before hitting the next stage. The actual rash typically focuses on your mouth, nose and eyes (although it can extend to your torso), consists of small blisters and can cause facial and tongue swelling because it targets the body's mucous membranes.

Obviously none of us can diagnose you, but IMO the sudden increase in lamictal could well be a factor here. I'm open to correction from anybody else.

SJS can be very serious. If the blisters and face swelling haven't subsided by tomorrow I'd really strongly suggest that you go see the local GP, even if you don't think s/he is very good. Better safe than sorry, and your health is too precious to stall on something like this. Go in armed with the suggestion of SJS as a reaction to your lamictal, because it probably isn't something s/he encounters regularly.

I ran some drug-drug interaction searches on your psych cocktail combined with celestamine and couldn't find anything. Allergic reactions are strange beasts. I do hope that by the time you read this you've seen some improvement.
