Paitient goes to dr for depression. Dr gives patient zoloft and lamictal. Never hearing of lamictal, I googled it to find out it is given for epiliptic seizures. I have never had a seizure before in my life. Does this seem to be of the norm?
The best thing to do in this case is call your doctor and ask why he or she has prescribed this particular medication.
There are some medications which serve more than one purpose. Lamictal is one of these types of medications. In addition to treating seizures it also can help treatment resistant depression and/or Bipolar Disorder. Here is the information we have on our site about Lamictal.
I also found this FAQ about this medication you may want to look at.
Hope this helps some. Thank you for your question.
