I would assume they would follow up by changing you to another mood stabilizer in the meantime but you could discuss this with them and also think if any medications have helped you in the past because unless they would give you instructions otherwise most likely they would start another medication to prevent a return in what it was there to treat. Most medications thankfully do not cause Stephen's Johnson syndrome but they would know which ones. There should be a way they could get in touch with your psychiatrist since its an emergency but if not there should be a psychiatrist who could work with you in the meantime.

My rash started at my feet and worked itself up to my face....then I went to ER because I got deathly ill...and itched every where!!!!.
Later on my soles of my feet had a "skin peel" like a snake.

Go to the ER ASAP!

thanks for the concern, I have come off the medication and the rash is nearly all gone, mine to started at my feet and made its way up my body, I went to ER and they said it was luckily in the early stages so I didnt have the skin peeling, just starting to blister. Im feeling ok so I dont think coming off the meds has had an effect on my mood, I feel positive at the moment so I will just wait for my own doc, I am also on epilim so its not like I am off all meds.
