Experienced Denver Defective Drug Lawyers Fight on Your Behalf
Lamictal has a very serious side effect that takes the form of an allergy. The medication can cause a very serious skin rash that, in its worst forms, results in death. When Lamictal was first prescribed, about 10% of all patients developed this life-threatening rash, which is a terrible rate of negative reaction. The symptoms of an adverse reaction to Lamictal are similar to Stevens Johnson Syndrome.
Symptoms of a Lamictal-related rash include:
- Painful blisters
- Flu-like symptoms
- High fever
- Ocular complications
- Skin that sloughs off
Doctors soon found that the likelihood of suffering this allergic reaction decreases the longer the medication is in use. By beginning with a very low dosage of Lamictal and progressively increasing the dosage to an effective level, patients can grow acclimated to the drug and in doing so avoid the rash.
