Please for your safety go to a doctor right away.My friend had this reaction it was very serious and with help from medical doctor he was treated fast at first and then slowly over time he has recovered.Lamtical can be a great drug I've been on it for almost 10 years, it has worked great at controlling my mood swings. In the beginning I was told all the possible reactions. I am lucky I didn't have any reaction but if I did Have one such as this I would be at the ER.
She's right. Under Lamictal, it says to contact your doctor AT ONCE if you develop rash symptoms, including red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin. This is indicative of Stevens Johnson Syndrome, the one thing that every doctor and patient worries about when they're first starting Lamictal, or titrating to a new dose, but mostly when just starting.
It is urgent that you seek medical care immediately.
