Lamictal skin rash all over the body
I was diagnosed with Bipolar Type II and they prescribed me a drug known as Lamictal. They told me to look for a Lamictal Rash known as Steven Johnson Syndrome that could potentionally become fatal. I didn't believe them that a RASH could become fatal but little did I know, 3 months AFTER I was taking this medication, I started to get small red bumps on my lower back that started to spread throughout the week. Within a week and a half, the rash took over my entire body. Doctors, even Dermatologists were stunned by this rash. I had this for a little over 2 months. Taking time away from work and other normal activities. It was hell. It burned, and itches and left me with scars all over the body. Scariest 2 months of my entire life being in and out of the hospital. Skin swelling up and then going back down. I am not saying that everyone will get this rash, but if I were you, I wouldn't take any chances.
Lamictal Skin Rash
Within one week of taking Lamictal (25 mg), I have the rash all over my whole body. It looks horrible and it's EXTREMELY itchy. I'm too humiliated to go out looking like this in public. And another thing, the rash keeps getting worse, ALTHOUGH I stopped taking the medication after a week. It's now a week later and this is ridiculous.
