Soooo.....I forgot to ask my question.....

If I stopped the lamictal and the mysterious rash is flaring up 24hrs after stopping it .......is it still the "lamictal rash"......????....... or am I likely to have just developed said rash and happened to be on lamictal?.....

Have you seen a doctor since you stopped the Lamictal? What did your doctor tell you to do if the rash continues because as you know there can be permanent scarring from the rash in addition to life-threatening symptoms. What do you need to do to stop the rash from worsening? I've taken Lamotrigine for 2 years and had no problem with it, but from what I understand I can still get the rash anytime even if I stop taking the Lamotrigine.

A little yoga goes a long way
