Hi, Lornaa! Lamotrigine (Lamictal) has been known to cause these side effects in *rare* to *incidence unknown* cases and generally resolve within few days to several weeks after starting the medication.
Let your doctor know that you have these symptoms, but chances are they will resolve on their own quickly.
muscle cramps, pain, or weakness
back, leg, or stomach pains
stiffness of the arms and legs
