I took lamictal and Depakote ER for 3 years. I gained 65 lbs. I just 2 months ago was switched to lithium and lamictal, had blood work, and now have hypothyroidism. I don't have a dr. appointment until July 18th. to get off the lithium. I don't believe the lithium to be the cause of my hypothyroidism because I haven't taken it long enough, but am aware that I need to be taken off that drug. I researched lithium/thyroidism and found that the only cause for hypothyroidism may be weight gain. Depakote ER caused rapid weight gain for me. Maybe there is a connection there. I've been taking lamictal for about 4 years. I did have a rash on my arm about 3 months ago. I didn't connect it to the lamictal, so didn't tell my dr. The rash went away on it's own. I also experienced total body itching at that time.
