Lamictal is turning out to be an excellent treatrment for people with Cyclothymia or Bipolar-II. While the rash is potentially a serious problem, I have treated over 300 patients with Lamictal, and while a few have developed a rash, over half of those who did, were able to continue on Lamictal after an adjustment in the dose and the speed with which the dose was being increased.

Best regards . . .

> Laura,
> Sounds like we have alot in common with our symptoms. Thanks for your answer. I think I'm going to ask my pdoc about trying lamactil next time. He added Topamax to the lithium to help with the weight gain but it's created some of the inner tension and restlessness that I'm wanting to be rid of. If lamactil doesn't cause weight gain, then I've heard enough good things about it, aside from the pesky rash thing, that it sounds worth giving a try. Best of luck to you. - Barbara
