Feeling of something stuck in the throat after swallowing food. I have had 2 scopes and an upper gi and it has proved negative for any problems. Also I clear my throat alot and seem to have an excess of saliva? I was taking desipramine for 20 years before being put on lamotrigine.
The answer is no, firtst of all I checked and there are no such side effects. I aslo take lamictal which is lamotigine, been on it for 4 or 5 years and never experiencend anything like that.
Now with regards to the other med, I also checked the side effects and none of the ones you describe are listed.
I suggest you contact a Doctor... from a caring individual
I was put on Lamictal also. While in hospital they gave me mood stabilizers that caused dystonia (stiffening of the muscles) My neck and body would be stiff all over making me miserable. I could barely talk as my throat had seemed to stiffen up too. I hope this has been helpful to you. I cannot take Lamictal.
I know this is a long time from the first question in 2010 but I have the same situation and symptoms. It feels like I have cotton in my throat after taking Lamictal. They say it's acid reflux but it started when the doctor raised the amount of pills I(dosage) I have gone to an ENT and he did a scoping and found nothing. I do not have any symptoms of acid reflux at all. I just saw the posting while looking for side effects and it does say problems with swallowing mostly in woman 50-59 and I have the symptoms. I did not put it together until tonight when my throat was ok until I took my night pills. OMG it has been so bad I do not sleep because I am coughing trying to clear my throat. I tried antacid stuff and it helps some times . I have to see my doctor tomorrow. I was going to a gastro doctor but I'm sure he won't find any thing, unfortunately, I'm.sure it is the pills!!
