Effects of Lamictal
Lamictal® (lamotrigine) is a prescription medication approved to treat epilepsy and bipolar disorder. It is not known exactly how this drug works to treat these conditions; however, studies suggest that the effects of Lamictal on the body may include affecting sodium channels in the brain. As a result, it prevents abnormal activity from spreading to other parts of the brain.
Although most people do not have problems with this drug, it is possible to experience side effects. Lamictal, for example, may cause problems such as headaches, dizziness, and nausea. In most cases, any negative effects are mild and easily treated, but it's important to report any adverse reaction to your healthcare provider.
