I like that feeling as I tend to be hypervigilant as a result of an extremely tulmutuous childhood that included physical and emotional abuse. I think we're probably a bit overconcerned at the idea of being susceptible to side effects. The amount of people who have adverse skin reactions is actually pretty small and like I said your risk is greatly reduced by starting in low doses.

Thanks for responding. So, Lamictal just seems to reduce anxiety generally? That's good. The incidence of rash is actually quite high with Lamictal-about 1 in 10 people *will* get a rash-statistically anyhow. I don't mind a simple rash (I would freak and stop though), I just don't want some kind of human pizza in the intensive care ward thing to go down!
