Epilepsy Home > Lamictal XR Drug Interactions

Valproate
Valproate medications can increase the level of Lamictal XR in your blood, possibly increasing your risk of side effects. Taking these medications together can increase your risk of a life-threatening skin rash (see Lamictal Rash). Your healthcare provider will recommend a lower Lamictal XR dosage if you are taking a valproate medication.
