My son's psychiatrist decided to try my 10 year old on Lamictal. He has been taking it for almost two weeks. I have been almost paranoid about this rash after googling "lamictal rash"(Omg) and now he has a small blistery rash on his forearm. It doesn't itch, it doesn't hurt and it doesn't really seem to be spreading. I called his psychiatrist and told him about the rash along with red cheeks and hands a couple of days ago, that could have been from the severe weather change. He has also come down with a cold, which in my mind I keep thinking that it *might* be "flu like" and that's another one of the warning signs for Steven Johnsons. This is all so frustrating and I feel like I'm developing so much anxiety over it that I may need to be on medications soon myself. lol The sad thing is that this medication already seems to be helping him! He has felt better this week! He has been exercising every day this week. Things haven't been perfect but there have been some MAJOR glimmers of hope. So his psychiatrist wants me to take him off of it for a week and then put him back on it at a smaller dose(half of the 25 mg) for two weeks and then if he tolerates that well, we will increase by half a pill every two weeks. And then if he develops any sort of rash with round two, the pill will be pulled and we won't try it again. But the paranoid side of me is worried that I will give him half a pill and he will immediately come down with Steven Johnsons! So frustrating!!!
