The neurologist warned me about the possibility of a rash with Lamictal. He said that it could be really dangerous, and to call him immediately if we notice it. Today we are almost 2 weeks into Lamictal usage, and my Peanut woke up covered in a rash. I called him and he said to stop the Lamictal immediately and give her Benadryl every 8 hours. He mentioned that Benadryl can lower seizure threshold, added in with stopping the Lamictal, so to expect more seizures than normal. But hopefully the rash will go away.
He will call tomorrow, to see how it looks. If it gets worse, she gets a fever over 100, or develops mouth sores, we are to go straight to the ER.
I hate seizures!
