My little one started the weaning process to replace Topomax with Lamictal. It's been almost a month now since he started and we have noticed that his seizures have gotten better. Monday, we added an extra pill a day (slowly weaning him on the meds) per Drs orders. She told us to watch out for a rash on his face, stomach, or back and said that it would be rough like sand paper. I noticed what looked like a heat rash last week but felt like I was just watching him too closely b/c of the Drs warning. Well it continued to spread, but never felt rough like sandpaper until yesterday. It actually felt like he scraped his face. It's in two different spots now. I called the Dr today and she told us not to give anymore Lamictal and to bring him in for her to check him out tomorrow morning. To me, the rash is not bad, but it's there. I'm hoping it's not bad enough to need to take him completely off of Lamictal b/c it has seemed to help him. Has anyone dealt with this before?
