User :   My wife has been taking lamictal oral (25 Mg) for three days now and woke up this morning with small blisters around her mouth and inside, a slightly swollen tongue, racing thoughts and sore throat. She has consulted a doctor and has been told to stop the medication, take a couple benadryl and wait for it to pass in a couple days. She is still very frazzled by is and feels that it is not getting better. What can she do to calm down and help this clear her system?

Doctor :   Some of the skin reactions are like ones that can happen with other medications, such as hives (also
known as urticaria) and a red raised rash with or without small liquid filled vesicles (sometimes called
erythema multiforme). These rashes are not usually harmful.
Rarely, potentially harmful skin reactions can occur, the most serious of which are called Stevens-
Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN). Sometimes it is difficult to tell
whether a skin reaction is going to be harmful or not, and your doctor needs to consider stopping
lamotrigine treatment if any kind of skin reaction occurs.
