Description of Lamictal XR

Lamictal XR is an extended-release medicine that is thought to help keep electrical signals balanced in the brain. The brain and nerves are made up of many nerve cells that communicate with each other through electrical signals. These signals must be carefully regulated for the brain and nerves to function properly. When abnormally rapid and repetitive electrical signals are released in the brain, the brain becomes over-stimulated and normal function is disturbed, resulting in seizures.

Regulate Proper Brain Activity with Lamotrigine

Lamictal XR or generic Lamotrigine prevents epileptic seizures by stopping sodium from entering your nerve cells when they start to fire quick and repetitive electrical signals. Without a buildup of sodium, electrical signals cannot be passed on to other nerve cells so a seizure will not occur. The active ingredients in this extended release medication will be released over a longer period of time so that their effect in your system can last until your next prescribed dose. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

More Uses for Lamictal XR

Lamictal XR may be prescribed in the treatment of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy. Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a severe kind of epilepsy that starts in childhood. Children with LGS have seizures often, and they have several different kinds of seizures. While most children have ongoing seizures and some form of learning disability, some may respond well to treatment with medication such and Lamictal XR, and have fewer seizures.

In addition to its use for treating epilepsy, Lamotrigine is used by specialists as a mood stabilizer for treating people with the psychiatric illness, bipolar affective disorder. Lamotrigine is used to help prevent episodes of depression in people who suffer mostly from this side of the illness.

Before Lamictal XR is Prescribed

Lamictal XR is for use only in adults and children who are at least 13 years of age. Do not take Lamictal XR in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Taking too much Lamictal XR at the start of treatment may increase your risk of a severe life-threatening skin rash. You should contact your doctor at the first sign of a skin rash.

Lamictal XR Proper Use

Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets; doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. You should not stop taking this medicine suddenly unless your doctor tells you to, as this may result in your seizures returning or getting worse. The safety of taking Lamictal XR during a pregnancy or while nursing has not been established so discuss this with your doctor.
