I was just prescribed lamictal and I was wondering if anyone here has taken it. I suffer from anxiety and mood disorders

I have been on it for bipolar and it's worked really well for me

My doc had me try it, but I started to get a Stevens-Johnson type rash from it, so we had to stop.  I ended up on Topamax.

I was for a long time.  When I was misdiagnosed for the 15th, 20th, who knows what misdiagnosis I was on.

I think I recall having a little dry mouth for a short period of time, but no other side effects to speak of.   Its actually pretty tame compared to other things you can be on.
