    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Lamotrigine 25mg

Recommended Posts

Guest Vietnam Tanker

I was recently prescribed this Lamotrigine to take one tablet by mouth at bedtime and increase toe two tabs after 7 day's. I took the first one Saturday and again last night. I am feeling very wozzy and unstable in walking. I take this in addition to 1mg of Alpraolam (Zanex) 4 times a day every six hours, and a slew of other meds. According to I-guard these are all a very dangerous combination. B)

I am not a health care professional, so don't officially take my word on this.

Because you are having trouble walking, don't drive! You could place yourself or others at risk if something goes wrong.

Contact the prescribing physician as soon as possible. The VA or your insurance company's nurse hotline might be able to triage your symptoms over the phone. They don't know the medicine is causing you an adverse reaction unless you tell them.

Also, certain psychotropic medications may a while before the full effect occurs. During this time, you might notice some unpleasant or unwanted side effects. When the full effect is achieved, the effects may go away. Sometimes they don't... The effects may be different for everyone.

Hope you get to feeling better

John,

I take it as an anti-convulsant, along with about tons of other meds.

Carlie....Yep,same reason I take Lamictal

Good ole Seizure Disorder Thanks to 2 Shore Patrol & me having a disagreement in a Bar in Japan in 1967 Guess they didn't have a sense of humor lol

OK..I take 600 mg of Lamictal a day plus other Anti Seizure meds & all of those Anti Seizure Oills can cause Mentel confusion & who knows what else

What I've found from taking all those pills is my Short Term memory SUCKS

Long term seems to be OK most of the time

What I would advise him to do is look up Anti Seizure Druds & they will tell him all the suspected side effects of it

My favorite part is where they say " We don't know what it does but we suspect it does this & this"

As far as it being dangerous taking those 2 pills together I suppose a drug site could inform him of that

I also take 400 mg of Dilantin a day & 1500 mg of Levetiracetam a day

So, I suspect that might be the reaon I feel sometimes my head isn't screwed on real tight

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
