Lamictal XR, containing lamotrigine, is prescribed for the prevention or control of seizures, specifically for epilepsy management.

This drug is not approved for use in children younger than 2 years due to an increased risk of side effects, such as infections.


  • Take Lamictal XR exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, usually once daily with or without food.
  • Your healthcare provider might start you on a low dose and gradually increase it over time to minimize side effects.
  • Take Lamictal XR consistently, at the same time each day, to maintain a steady level of medication in your body.
  • Be aware that it may take several weeks or months to experience the full benefits of Lamictal XR.
  • Maintain a regular sleep schedule and avoid getting too little sleep, as this can worsen seizures.
  • Inform your healthcare provider about all medications and herbal products you take, including prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs, to avoid potential interactions.
  • Tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant.
  • Tell your healthcare provider immediately if you experience a rash, especially if it starts within the first few weeks of taking Lamictal XR, as this can be a serious side effect.


  • Do not crush, chew, or break them. Swallow the tablets whole. 
  • Don't take more or less Lamictal XR than prescribed by your healthcare provider.
  • Don't skip or stop taking Lamictal XR without consulting your healthcare provider, especially if you are taking it for epilepsy. Stopping Lamictal XR suddenly can increase your risk of seizures.
  • Don't take Lamictal XR with grapefruit or grapefruit juice, as it can increase the amount of Lamictal XR in your body and lead to side effects.
