I just went on 200mg a day 2 weeks ago , I had a real bad abcessed eye tooth, out of the blue i had a seizure not one but two,i was admitted to the hospital, and test was ran but they still didn't tell me what caused them. They prescribed me me lamictal 50mg two times a day, The very next week my abcess got worse and i started amoxicillan the next day i had 3 mor seizures, im thinking it had something to do with my tooth, but my question is why did i have a seizure while taking the lamictal ? I also take neurontin for nerve pain and have took it for 6yrs. Is this medicine (LaMICTAL) rated high for preventing seizures? If not what is ? I live in fear now of having them and want to know what to do . HELP ME PLEASE! Also i have no insurance so it's hard for me to see a neuroligist, or a family doctor all the time.
Lamictal is used to prevent seizures but the dosage has to be built up. Also not everyone gets complete seizure control with just one anti-seizure drug. Some have to take 2- 3 different ones. Are these the first seizures you ever had and might there be anotherr cause for them? You really need to keep in touch with a neurologist while you try to get this under control. There is most likely something more than an abcessed tooth going on here. Watch for rashes with this drug. It is a good drug and often now one of the first used for seizure control but a rash can indicate a serious problem.
