Lamictal/lamotrigine-3 more questions

Posted by Bekka H. on February 16, 2002, at 22:28:17

I have three more questions about Lamictal. . .

1. Does anyone know how Lamictal affects the cytochrome P450 enzymes? In other words, does it have significant adverse interactions with other drugs?

2) Does Lamictal cause weight gain? I know that many of the anti-convulsants cause significant weight gain. Is Lamictal one of those?

3) I read that Lamictal can cause increased sun sensitivity for both the skin and eyes. I had a malignant melanoma removed several years ago, and I am at increased risk for skin cancer, so I am not eager to take a medicine that will cause even more sun sensitivity than I already have. Has anyone here who is on Lamictal experienced increased sun burns, eye problems, etc.?
