Can lamotrigine make you more sensitive to the sun?

Not usually: It is very rare that lamotrigine would cause increased sensitivity to the sun. That said, though, it's important to limit direct exposure to the sun and to protect your skin when you're outside. If you notice a rash, blistering, or other skin problem after being in the sun, see your doctor in case it may be the result of a medication you are taking.
