Hi, I'm new here -- glad to find this place.

I started Lamictal in late Feb. of this year, so I'm about 5 months and a week into the 6-month window. I am also on desipramine, Effexor and Risperdal.

I started noticing unconnected, non-itchy, -bumpy, -painful red splotches all up and down my legs last week. They got infinitely worse after being out baking in the sun for a couple of hours over last weekend.

The desipramine can cause photosensitivity, so I'm wondering if that's it, but I'm frantic about "lamictal rash," because of all the mood stabilizers I've tried (Depakote, Trileptal, Topamax), it's the only one that's worked well for me, and I'd hate to lose it. My pdoc said to give it a couple more days and if it's not better, stop it and go to the ER.

From what I've read on this thread, my disconnected little splotches don't really sound like the awful rashes the others have described, but I am just curious if anyone here has come up with anything similar.
