Lamictal

How Should It Be Stored?

It should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Store the tablets in an airtight container.
 
Keep Lamictal and all medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your dose as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose. Your healthcare provider may ask if you miss any of your Lamictal doses, as this information may be helpful for adjusting your dosage.
