I had an allergic reaction to triliptal. I was switched to Lamictal and began to feel allergic symptoms ease. They are back now. I have awful leg aches, cant sleep thru the night. I get leg rashes. My lymph nodes in the back of my neck are swollen and sore. I get nausea frequently... ugh! I went to the doctor and she did bloodwork and stated it was normal. I dont feel normal, Im in pain and they just give me pain pills. HELP!! I am healthy, recovered smoker, 43 years old and active... very active!!
Lamotrigine - could Lamictal be causing my legs to ache and have rashes?

Added 28 Aug 2012:
thanks for the input. The neurologist prescribed the meds, he does everything over the phone. My GP did not seem all that concerned with the swollen lymph nodes. She ran blood-work and said it came back normal. I cant continue to be up at night with the pain....and I'm no wuss! If these are side effects, I just do not want it!! This is the 4th med he has put me on. I just feel like I would rather have a seizure once in a while than to go thru this....I take herbs and I know they help....I didnt take the meds this morning so that I can hopefully get some relief?? I have lost any and all faith in this doctor.

I totally agree with maso.
Didn't your doc that prescribed the lamictal explain that any and every bump on you skin could signify the onset a sometime fatal disease. Was the doc prescribing this meds a psychiatrist?
I can't believe a doc wouldn't give you signs to look for.
Go to the ER immediately, let the docs know what mg you are on and how long.
Could save you a lot of heartbreak.
