Can You Drink Small Amounts Of Alcohol While Taking Lamictal?
Posted 26 April 2011 - 10:57 AM
I looked on the Lamictal website to find information on alcohol, but I couldn't find anything saying not to drink alcohol.
Got scared b/c I just found out you aren't supposed to drink while taking Seroquel, which I have done. Drank first, then took it, so ?
Anyway, just want to make sure about Lamictal since I recently discontinued Seroquel.
I only drink 1-2 glasses of wine, once, maybe twice a month.

However, for me... one drink occasionally turns to one drink nightly turns to two drinks nightly, etc. Not an outlandish amount, but not a good idea on meds, either. And then I wondered why I was so depressed. DOH!
