After a failed round of Zoloft and a scary side effect of Abilify within the first two days of taking it orally, his Psychiatrist has recommended he start Lamictal. Initial dosage will be 25 mg for the first two weeks, increased gradually for the next few weeks. His original diagnosis was severe clinical depression. High suicidal idealation. Zoloft actually made his suicidal thoughts increase. Abilify locked his jaw and blurred his vision so bad he couldn't see. Lamictal's side effects are of a big concern for me. The rash warnings, scare the heck out of me. Please share your experience with any rash you might have had, and if the outcome, worth the risks. Thank you... signed a concerned mom.
