A few hours after I take Lamictal (200 mg) I start to itch all over. Nothing over the top and no hives. I will take a Benedryl and apply an anti-itch spray and eventually it stops. It does not interrupt my sleep and then disappears all day until I take the medication again and the same thing happens. Lamictal has been great other than this side effect. I no longer have insomnia, I feel stable and in the normal range of "good", I have been very happy on this medication and would hate to have to stop it to find another type of medication. The trade off of having this slight discomfort is worth the benefits I get from this drug. What should I do?
