It will almost always cause something unpleasant every time you stop abruptly.

Hi, beme! You cannot suddenly stop taking psychoactive medications (drugs that work in your brain) without possible withdrawal symptoms. Lamictal withdrawal can cause: depression, bipolar symptoms, nausea, vomitting, dizziness, paranoia, anxiety attacks, anger, balance problems, and irritability among other symptoms.
If you're having side effects or have another good reason to stop the medication, PLEASE talk to your doctor about how to do it safely.
