Lamictal: Lamictal is a medication for use in epilepsy. The effective level of Lamictal in the blood stream can be altered by hormones including birth control pills. Women are more likely to have side effects related to Lamictal than men. See your neurologist to determine if the dosage needs to be adjusted or another anticonvulsant medication should added.
