Lamictal (lamotrigine) is an anti-epileptic medication, also called an anticonvulsant. Lamictal is used alone or with other medications to treat epileptic seizures in adults and children. Lamictal is also used to delay mood episodes in adults with bipolar disorder (manic depression).
Lamotrigine is known as an anticonvulsant or antiepileptic drug. It is thought to work by restoring the balance of certain natural substances in the brain.
This drug is not approved for use in children younger than 2 years due to an increased risk of side effects (such as infections).
