Am I going to get lamictal withdrawal?


Recommended Posts

I was on 200 mg since january this year and last week my doc told me to stop it which I did. Till 2 days ago when I took it again, but I didn't take it again last night. So it has been about 36 hours since i took it. What effects should I look out for or expect? And how long does it take to be clear of them?

I tapered off of it in three days when I found out I was pregnant, which is fast but doable. I felt like my cognition was impaired for a week, but other than that I was fine.

I did once fail to take Lamictal for three days (I'm ditzy and didn't set up my meds right). I had the most tripped out migraine. At least that's what the ER docs thought it was. It felt almost dissociative, and my thoughts were muddled. The headache itself wasn't unbearable, but the sensory sensitivity was there. It was so bizarre. Honestly, the ER docs should have tested for seizures, but they didn't. Whatever. Anyway, I was at 200 mg of Lamictal, and now I triple check my meds daily.
