Lamictal and melanin binding

Posted by Quintal on April 27, 2008, at 14:11:01

I'm concerned about the possible long-term effects of melanin binding while taking Lamictal. I don't understand what exactly it means, but from what I've read there is concern that melanin-binding in the iris of the eye may affect eyesight in the long run. I don't know how or why this would happen though. Does it increase the risk of skin cancer or anything like that? Should I take particular care to wear sunscreen and UV filtered shades? I remember the last time I was taking Lamictal my skin changed colour slightly, and one person accused me of using sunbeds becuase I looked as if I had a tan (it was the middle of an English winter). I don't know if this had anything to do with Lamictal, but it was strange. Another explanation is that I was slightly jaundiced.

I'd appreciate it if anyone had further information/theories etc.
