Lamictal / Lamotrigine

Lamictal / Lamotrigine

What is Lamotrigine?

Lamotrigine, marketed under the brand name of Lamictal, is a prescription medication initially approved as an antiepileptic to prevent seizures. Later, the drug was approved for use against Bipolar I disorder.

Lamotrigine and Lamictal May Cause Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN)

Lamictal and lamotrigine – along with other drugs such as Dilantin and Zyloprim – may cause Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), both life threatening skin disorders.

Symptoms of SJS include:

  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Lesions
  • Rashes
  • Sore Throat
  • Ulcers

Diagnosing SLS in its early stages can reduce the risk of fatality. However, SJS is considered an emergency condition and treatment must be immediate.

Those who recover from SJS may be left with continuing medical complications such as organ damage, cornea damage, and blindness.

SJS is regarded as a milder form of TEN, though many symtoms are the same. The results of TEN, however, are more severe. The condition causes the top layer of skin, the epidermis, to detach from the lower layers, the dermis.
