The bloating stopped as soon as I returned to my original dosage of 75 mg. (It started when I increased up to 125 mg).
Good luck -- I hope you feel better soon. Perhaps just a lower dose of Lamictal can still help you without the bloating? (For me, though, I wasn't being helped much at 75).
Take care, cindy
