Menstruation and Lamictal (sorry men)

Talk about meds, side effects, and the 'med-go-round'.

Anyone ever have issues with their menstrual cycle while taking Lamotrigine?

Weird uh spotting going on? Normal? Harmful?

I do have an appt with my pdoc and will tell her, just not sure if it will just be a spotting issue or full blown period.

Ps. Sorry men for the tmi

I never had an issue back when I was on it (400 mg/day). No help from this corner.

Let us know what your doc says, ok?

I do know Lamictal can affect the efficacy of birth control methods and vice versa....
