There is most likely no dangerous effects from taking two doses of lamotrigine accidentally. Side effects may be more pronounced such as: ataxia, skin rash, headache, insomnia, and nausea. Try to use a medicine minder or sorter to keep track of daily meds. This can better signal whether you have taken a specific med for the day.
