Re: Lamictal side effects, weight gain?

hello all...

i have been taking seroquel ( an antipsychotic ) and neurontin / gabapentin ( a mood stabilizer ) for several years since a diagnosis of bipolar in 2000.

i have consequently gained 60 lbs. in two divided increments of 30 each over two winters due to my med. regimen. ... this weight gain has not responded to diet or exercise and so i am investigating a switch.

a doctor has advised, in case the neurontin is to blame, that i should switch to lamictal / lamotrigine ... she demands that it is weight neutral , but i have read (here) differently.

does anyone who has remained on a trial of lamictal have any insight about its propensity to cause weight gain?
