Lamotrigine: Treatment for epilepsy.

December 8, 2007 | by DoctorSolve

Lamotrigine is an anticonvulsant medication which is used in the treatment of epilepsy (is a neurological disorder in which excessive surges of electrical energy are emitted in the brain, causing seizures). In psychiatry, Lamotrigine is also indicated in the treatment of bipolar disorder (manic-depression). It helps control seizure disorders and is taken orally. Lamotrigine’s effect upon neurochemicals stabilizes mood, preventing sudden, unpredictable, and severe episodes of mania and depression.

How to take Lamotrigine

Take this medication by mouth exactly as prescribed by your doctor. For the best effects, take this medication at evenly spaced times throughout the day and night. This will ensure a constant level of drug in your body. Do not take this more often or increase your dose without consulting your doctor. Do not stop taking Lamotrigine without your doctor’s approval since seizures may reoccur. Notify your doctor if seizure control worsens.
