new lamictal warning

There is a new warning for those who take the drug Lamictal. Since I mention it in my blog often, I thought I would link to this page on Drugs.com in case someone stumbles upon my site.

INTRO: The FDA is warning that the medicine Lamictal (lamotrigine) for seizures and bipolar disorder can cause a rare but very serious reaction that excessively activates the body’s infection-fighting immune system. This can cause severe inflammation throughout the body and lead to hospitalization and death, especially if the reaction is not diagnosed and treated quickly.
