I haven't heard of hair loss as a side effect of Lamictal. My best friend has been on it for years and has not had a problem. I also know others on it including my 13 year old son. Let me tell you, it has been a miracle drug for him. I'm sorry for your loss and I hope that you can find some solutions for the hair loss. Take care.
I currently am on Lamictal and Wellbutrin and have not experienced hair loss. However, a couple of years ago I was on a variety of medications including Zoloft, Xanax, Trazadone and Clonapin and noticed the hair loss. I went from having thick hair to very thin and brittle. My hair is finally starting to thicken up. Has your doctor said anything about the combination of medication that you may be taking? Best of luck to you.
I have been on lamatical and wellubtrin for a while and have no hair lost sytpoms mine seems to growing alot faster
Have you seen a dermatologist about the hair loss. To me it sounds like there is something else going on if you have red inflamed areas. Think you need to do that first. Would also make sure they check your thyroid levels as this can make hair fall out like a chemo patients.
I am on this drug taking 300mcg and never had this problem - ck you thyroid (sp) hypothyroid cause big time hair loss
i'm sorry about your Grandmother, tashi. I had some hair loss, too. Drugs plus extreme stress can make one's hair fall out. Don't hit me -- scalp bugs can cause your hair to fall. I hope you feel better. shawn
