Deb,
I have been taking Lamictal 200mg. twice daily for 2 years. I have not had any issues with it. He might be changing my meds or upping dosage because I seem to be having alot more seizure activity.
I took Topimax and HATED it. My first and only side effect was hot flashes. At the time I just didn’t like them, but now since I have started to cross that fine line of being an old lady, my “personal summers” aka. hot flashes are natural, I would prefer not to have them drug induced. I was only taking 25 mg. at first then 75mg. when I stopped taking them . Good Luck
