... experiencing severe dental pain. Will this go away?
The prescribing physician should know the consequences of halting a medication, and I would hope this was done gradually. Should your symptoms stay the same or get worse by tomorrow I would strongly suggest you contact him/her. Hope this help.
Lamotrigine or Lamictal is a psychiatric medication. I don't understand the question. Are you thinking that the Lamictal is causing the dental pain or is contributing to it? What kind of dental pain are you having, is it related to a procedure or is it a sore tooth?
If your dental pain is related to the Lamictal, depending how much and how long you've been taking it will determine how long untill it leaves your system.
I think a call to your Psychiatrist is a good idea. And you might want to call you're dentist as they might be coincidental. I looked up likely side effects of lamotrigine and saw no mention of dental effects or pain.
Sure hope you get this problem resolved quickly, I hate tooth pain and I feel for you.
