Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 41 People

    I've taken lamictal for the last 3 years

    for my mood swings. I just recently found out that lamictal can cause water retention and edema in the face and body. Well, my face has been swollen since I've been in it and I've gone to specialists and doctor's who had no clue why my face was swollen. They thought I had...

    Lamictal For Bipolar While Pregnant/Nursing

    I was diagnosed with bipolar right before this pregnancy (good timing, right?). The only medication I'd tried before that was Symbyax, which didn't seem to help at all and may have made things worse. Its hard to tell because I was in a crazy spiral at the time, and my anxiety and...
