Has anyone NOT experienced hair loss while taking lamotrigine?

According to the results of clinical studies, hair loss appears to be a rare side effect of lamotrigine. In these studies, hair loss was reported in between 1 in 100 and 1 in 1,000 people taking the drug. Given how rarely hair loss occurs in people taking this product and how common it is in the general public, it is difficult to say whether Lamictal caused the hair loss, or if it was caused by other factors (like genetics or other medical conditions).

If you notice hair loss while taking Lamictal, please talk with your doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med. Depending on how severe the hair loss is, he or she may be able to recommend treatment options. If your symptoms continue to be bothersome, or if your doc/pharmacist believes the medicine is causing your hair loss, he or she may recommend trying another medication to treat your condition.

Take care!
