Lamictal is a prescribed psychiatric medicinal drug used to counter mood disorders in patients with bipolar disorder, and treat seizures associated with epilepsy. Lamotrigine works by regulating the emission of the brain chemical, glutamate, which is a brain-exciting hormone and overstimulates the brain, causing electrical activity that leads to seizures.
Lamictal prevents focal seizures, fits arising from Lennox-Gas taut syndrome, and tonic-clonic seizures. As a mood stabilizer, studies have shown it to be more effective than other antidepressants and often helps in treating Posttraumatic Stress Disorder PTSD, acute depression, depersonalization disorder, and schizoaffective disorder.
Lamotrigine exists in the form of oral tablets/pills, chewable tablets, and oral disintegrating tablets; their dosages range in between 25mg, 100 mg, 125, mg, 200 mg (tablets/pills), 2 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, (chewable tablets) and for oral disintegrating tablets 25 mg, 50 mg, 100 mg, 200 mg.
