If you or a loved one has taken Lamotrigine (also known as Lamictal) and experienced a prescription drug injury, then you might be able to receive compensation for your case. This medication is often used for specific health conditions despite the known side effects it can cause.

Unfortunately, the side effects of Lamotrigine/Lamictal can be quite severe, causing permanent damage or even death. Not only do you need medical care to recover from this prescription drug injury, but it’s also time to talk to a Lamotrigine attorney about your situation. It might make sense to file a lawsuit so you can receive compensation for the injury. 

Our team at Wormington & Bollinger is here to help. We have years of experience advocating for patients with medication injuries and offer the personalized support you need to build your case. Don’t wait to find an attorney if you believe that you’ve been injured by Lamictal or any other type of prescription medication.

Potential Side Effects of Lamotrigine

Lamictal is a medication that is often prescribed for bipolar disorder and epilepsy. It was approved by the FDA for these purposes in 1994, and this medication is sometimes used for treating other health conditions as well. Over the years, millions of patients have used this medication, and many people are coming forward with stories about their prescription drug injuries.

Recently, medical studies have found a strong connection between Lamictal and serious health complications, such as:

  • Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS):
    A severe side effect from certain medications that causes irritation and damage to the skin. Patients experience a reddening of the skin, as well as blistering and detachment of the skin. 
  • Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN):
    This condition also affects the skin in a similar way as SJS. It can be very painful and cause long-lasting damage to the skin. 
  • Idiosyncratic Liver Injury:
    A rare but serious side effect of Lamotrigine is damage to the liver – causing severe and even fatal damage. 
  • Birth Defects:
    Women who took Lamotrigine during the first trimester of pregnancy have a much higher risk of delivering a baby with birth defects, including cleft lips or cleft palates.
  • Other Possible Side Effects:
    Lamotrigine has also been linked to a variety of other rare but serious side effects, including aseptic meningitis, mood changes (suicidal thoughts), allergic reactions, and more. 

Both SJS and TEN not only affect the skin, but they can damage mucous membranes inside and outside of the body. As a result, hemorrhaging, respiratory failure, and other life-threatening complications can occur.

Legal Recourse for Patients Harmed by Lamotrigine/Lamictal

The side effects of this prescription medication could cause damage that changes a person’s life. If you have been injured by Lamotrigine, then rest assured knowing that compensation might be available. The drug manufacturer needs to be held liable for the injuries they have caused. Also, you need compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other associated costs.

It’s important that you know your rights. You deserve to have a legal advocate who can build an effective Lamictal lawsuit to access the compensation you are entitled to.
