What is Lamictal?
Lamictal (lamotrigine) is classified as an anticonvulsant, which is used in the treatment of epilepsy. Typically, Lamictal is used to control the onset of seizures in adults and children who are at least two years old. It is also prescribed to help control drastic mood swings in adults dealing with bipolar disorder.
Lamictal is taken orally, often in combination with other medications. It can cause serious or life-threatening skin rashes in rare cases, so it is important to consult your doctor at the first sign of skin irritation or rash that could be related to Lamictal use.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Living with a chronic seizure disorder can be very stressful. The additional stress of worrying about how to pay for your Lamictal prescription can hurt your quality of life and potentially exacerbate your health issues. There’s no need to make difficult financial decisions or sacrifice other essentials in order to pay for the medicine you need.
Simplefill will find the patient assistance program you’re most likely to qualify for to help you start saving money on your Lamical prescription. Some of the available programs are designed specifically for the uninsured, but others are based on financial need and provide assistance to those who are insured but are having trouble covering their deductibles and copays.
How does Lamictal Work?
Lamictal is in the sodium channel blocking class of anticonvulsant medications. It is thought to suppress the release of two amino acids—aspartate and glutamate—that function as neurotransmitters.
Aspartate and glutamate are found in abundance in the central nervous system and are capable of exciting neurons and causing convulsions. By blocking their release, Lamictal reduces the potential for seizure activity.
Unlike other sodium channel blockers used in the treatment of epilepsy, such as Dilantin, Lamictal is also effective in treating the depressed phase of bipolar disorder.
