I’m a 17-year-old girl and I am currently Lamotrigine as a mood stabilizer. I have been taking it for several months now. I take 200 mg every night and about 10 minutes after taking it I have numbness of my tongue, a funny taste, and feeling in my mouth. This lasts all night and it goes away about an hour after I wake up. During the day I get tired from exerting the smallest force. I’ve also noticed that I space off a lot and, although not often, I experience some confusion. Are these normal side effects of the medication?
