Vimpat anyone?

Recommended Posts

Supposed to see a cardiologist next week to check out my heart since Vimpat can cause long QT Syndrome. 

I am concerned about taking this drug, so wondering if anyone else has taken Vimpat and what your experiences are.

Oddly enough I take an anti-psychotic med that also can promote long QT Syndrome and have not experienced anything related to that issue so far. 

There is also Lamictal on the table too.

Ask your pharmacist. There are many, many meds that can cause it. Even something you wouldn't expect like Seroquel and a Z-Pack. I've seen many patients take multiple drugs in concert and have been fine. I'd rather you discuss it with your pharmacist. They're trained in exactly things like this.
