May need further eva: If you developed a rash recently, this needs to be evaluated further. Lamictal, in particular, may need to be discontinued. The fact that you did not have a rash before while on Lamictal does not preclude the possibility that you have developed a reaction to it.

I agree with Dr. Miller's assessment.
