General information about Lamotrigine

Lamotrigine is an anti-epileptic prescription medicine that is used to delay mood episodes in adults with bipolar disorder (bipolar depression). This drug was FDA approved in 1994 as an anticonvulsant, but was FDA approved in 2003 for bipolar disorder because of the mood stabilizer benefits documented with patients with this diagnosis.

Active ingredient

Lamotrigine is the active ingredient in brand and generic medications, such as Lamictal and Apo-Lamotrigine, which belongs to the family of phenyltriazines and works by enhancing GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter. It also suppressed glutamate, another neurotransmitter that is excitatory; it also inhibits serotonin uptake, the action many antidepressants have. In these ways it is inhibitory, anti-excitatory, and mood stabilizing.

Conditions treated 

The main indications for Lamotrigine are epilepsy and bipolar disorder.

Generic and Brand Names

Lamotrigine is the generic ingredient in APO-Lamotrigine, a tablet, but it was first manufactured under the brand name, Lamictal, and has many generic names internationally, notably APO-Lamotrigine, Auro-Lamotrigine, Lamotrigine Sanis Health, PMS-Lamotrigine, and Teva-Lamotrigine (CANADA); Lamotrigine Actavis and many others (UK); Epitec (India), Lamictal (USA).

Warnings and Precautions

The following precautions should be practiced with the use of Lamotrigine.


Lamotrigine is contraindicated in any patient suspected of a lamotrigine allergy or hypersensitivity to it or any of its other inactive ingredients, or in patients requiring rapid urine drug screens, which can give a false-positive for PCP.


  • Lamotrigine carries a boxed warning about a serious life-threatening rash and should be discontinued with any rash noted and the patient closely monitored.
  • Patients taking anticonvulsants, including Lamotrigine 100 mg, have twice the risk of suicidal ideation and risk of suicide than those not on these medications.
  • Monitor for depression.
  • Abruptly discontinuing Lamotrigine mg may cause withdrawal seizures.
  • Caution should be used in patients with liver impairment, since it is primarily metabolized by the liver. Likewise, those on dialysis should be monitored closely for Lamotrigine plasma levels.
  • Black patients have a 25% lower clearance of Lamotrigine, so dosage adjustments may be necessary.
  • Lamotrigine is distributed into breast milk in breast-feeding mothers, so caution should be used in this situation.

Drug interactions

  • Acetaminophen is hepatotoxic, and with Lamotrigine can progress to fatal hepatotoxicity.
  • Co-administration with metformin can result in decreased metformin clearance.
  • Using Lamotrigine can potentiate the CNS depressive effects of the diazepam family (alprazolam, valium, etc.)
  • Use with amphetamines can lower the seizure threshold.
  • Decreased effectiveness of oral contraceptives may occur with concomitant use of this drug.
