Hi Anirudh,

Thank you for posting your query.

I would like to reassure you that Lamitor OD (Lamotrigine) is a very safe drug for treating epilepsy and there are no significant side effects.

As you know that epilepsy is a chronic illness, one has to continue the medicines long-term, even lifelong in some cases.

Wishing you good health,
