Lamictal
Overview

Lamictal (lamotrigine) is an oral medication used primarily to treat epilepsy and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (a disorder that causes seizures and sometimes developmental delays). It is also used to extend the time between depressive and manic episodes in bipolar disorder, although it does not treat these episodes. It is part of a class of medications called anticonvulsants. It works by affecting the electrical activity in the brain.
