Darn it! That sounds frustrating! Just when things were looking up. Do you have a pdoc too? If so, maybe you can double check with him/her too about this reaction. I don't know enought to tell you because I've never had this before (I take lamictal). But I do think you should be very cautious. I think it's pretty rare but the skin reactions to lamictal can be pretty serious so I'd monitor carefully. Maybe even discuss with your doc or pdoc whether you should titrate down or discontinue and build back up for a bit. Sorry, I wish I had good news but I just think it wouldn't hurt to be extra careful. Hope it goes away!
