Eccesive sweating is not one of the know side effects of Lamictal, although that doesn't mean that that is not the cause of your problem.
If this is bothersome to you, and it appears to be, I would schedule a complete physical with your GP to edliminate any physical cause(s) for this condition. If you GP gives you a clean bill of health, your next step is to seek advice froma professional mental healthcare provider to determine if the problem is, in any way, related to a psychological disorder.
Other than that, I can't think of any other course(s) of action to take at this time.
I sincerely wish you luck in resolving this issue.
I have been on lamictal/lamotrigine (don't know the difference between the two of em) for a couple of months. And I have been experiencing night sweats every night for the last couple of weeks. My wife says it stinks. It smells of urine. and no, I'm not a bedwetter. When I was younger, I used to be on seroxat and i remember sweating a lot during the night back then. However, I sweat profusely when doing sports. So maybe it's just me and not the drugs. II'm glad I on’t suffer from worse symptoms
The best of luck to you
I was on Lamictal for a long while and I don't remember excess sweating being a problem (it can be with other medications). If the odor of the sweat has changed in the way you described best to inform your doctor and ask if a blood test is needed to check out your metabolites regardless of cause.
Thanks for the advice. What were your SE's if you don't mind me asking?
The side effects I had from Lamictal were adverse side effects rare enough to literally be statistics. They don't sound like anything you describe. Excess sweating or urination in itself is not a side effect of concern but when the odor changes it could indicate a metabolite imbalance as I said but a urine test should be able to rule that out and although Lamictal does not have the requirement of regular blood monitoring as lithium or Tegretol do its still a good idea to have blood work done for liver functioning and standard blood work and a urine test like with many medications. You could ask your psychiatrist or doctor more about that.
I had to get off Cymbalta due to horrible sweating! Even went to an endocrinologist for a work up and he told me Cymbalta has a side effect of sweating. I was on it for years for the fibromyalgia and then the sweating started. So I stopped it and weeks later the sweating stopped. Good luck!
I am on lamictal and I'm excessively sweating. I'm so frustrated at being sweaty a lot. Anyone know what I can do? I don't know to do. please let me know how you get this resolved please
Lamictal made me sweat!!
It was on the list of many side effects for me though (suicidal thoughts, chest pain, neck stiffness) and the medicine seems to be working well for you. If it's bearable and working I would say stick with it!
