Lamictal rash??

Posted by hundredhugs on July 16, 2004, at 19:42:18

I have been on Lamictal for at least 4 years now and never had a problem. It has been a good med for me. At one point I was up to 600 mg but we got backed down to 450mg.

I started Eskalith about 3 months ago. I have a HORRIBLE rash that I swear is hives. I can't trace it to anything new. I went to the ER they said it is hives and they think it is med related. I called my pdoc and she said that the only med it could be is the lamictal because of the side effect of a rash. What I don't understand is I have been on it for so long. If I am not better in a couple days I am suppose to stop the lamictal cold turkey due to the threat of the rash. I am scared. I don't want to make the wrong decision, I really don't want to give up a med that has worked for me so well. But I don't want a life threatening rash either. Could the eskalith be causing this?

I would appreciate any input,
