My Dr started me on Lamictal a week ago, I'm very leery of medications that can cause weight gain and unfortunately I am one of the ones who often experience the weight gain, never the weight loss
Hi. lexus! I only took Lamictal for 2 years before I had to stop for an unrelated medical problem and I lost 5 pounds due, I think, to appetitie suppression during those two years.
Best wishes to you, Wildcat
I have never tried Lamictal, so have no idea about it.
I gained a lot of weight on Lamictal.
I was on Lamictal 2 years after my son was born and I started lactating Milk. I did not breast feed my son. So be careful with this medication.
