Information on lamotrigine (Lamictal)

Q: Greetings, Firstly, thanks for your Web Site and the information that you provide. Can you point me to information about Lamotrigine (Lamictal) which my wife's specialist wants her to go on instead of Epilum? Many thanks.

A: Thanks for your nice comments.

The easiest source for information is the package insert for the medication. All recent medications have very comprehensive information in their package insert, including data from the clinical trials that were used for the drug's approval. Your pharmacist should be able to provide you with a copy, even if you are not presently taking this medication.

If you have access to a medical library, you may wish to pull these references:
