I'm glad you talked with your doctor and that you're OK.
It's always a good idea for all of us to discuss side effects with our doctors, especially if a medication has a potentially dangerous side effect. I understand as do most people, that the big pharmas have to make note of every single thing that could go wrong, no matter how rare it is, look at you and the rash from Lamictal.........if your doctor had informed you of that possibility and how important it would be for you to see him if a rash appeared, you wouldn't have had to write to some forum to find out what was going on. I also realize that most doctors don't want to tell us all the possibilities.........most of us have a tiny bit of the hypochondriac in us, but I firmly believe we have the right to know what to watch for if we're taking a medication with life threatening side effects.
As patients, I think we need to start holding our doctors up to higher standards of sharing information that could compromise our health.
