Lamictil and Weight Gain

Were you looking for information about Lamictal and Weight Gain? Lamictil and weight gain is a common misspelling of Lamictal and weight gain.
Weight gain does appear to be a possible side effect of Lamictal®. In clinical studies, between 1 and 5 percent of people taking the drug for bipolar disorder experienced weight gain. However, weight gain was not reported in people taking the drug for epilepsy.
You may be able to control your weight simply by making lifestyle changes, such as getting more exercise and improving your diet. If you continue to notice a weight gain while taking Lamictal, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider. He or she may recommend other lifestyle changes, investigate other possible causes of the weight gain, or suggest a different medication.
