In brief: It should

Lamotrigine or Lamictal is a very good medication for epilepsy.
There is a risk for allergic rash, but otherwise is very safe and effective. There is a reasonable chance of good response to a single agent for epilepsy. Lamotrigine is excellent as a trial for good response. There are many good agents available. If Lamotrigine is not effective, there are plenty more to try.
