Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

As per the currently available literature it is not known whether lamotrigine causes panic attacks. I mean to say that it does not increase/cause any form of anxiety including panic attacks.

However there is some data to suggest that lamotrigine helps in anxiety to some extent if not fully.

I hope this answers you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
