The Food & Drug Administration warns that the use of Lamictal for treatment of epileptic or bipolar disorders may put patients at risk of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, life-threatening rashes
If you or a family member developed Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) or toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) after taking prescription Lamictal, you might have legal recourse. Lamictal, also known by the generic name Lamotrigine, is an anticonvulsant drug used to treat symptoms of epilepsy and bipolar disorder. Medical studies show a strong link between the use of Lamictal and adverse events including birth defects, aseptic meningitis, suicidal thoughts, severe rashes, anxiety, and Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. As far back as March 1997, the drug’s label has included a Black Box Warning concerning side effects associated with Lamictal use. If you or a loved one took Lamictal and experienced these adverse effects, please contact us to discuss your potential litigation and address any questions you have with our attorneys.
