I think your 1:10000 odds are wrong. http://www.lamictalsideeffects.org/ states kids have 0.8% (1:125) and adults 0.3% (1:333) risk. Grant it the site may be biased, like http://www.adderall.net/. I understand your sarcasmic defense, but sources are always good when stating statistics.

The inhibition of glutamate, the most abundant excitatory neurotransmitter, will inhibit the effects of Adderall since stimulation of the brain relies on increased glutamate action.

Although I could not find any interactions from scholarly sources, many other forums googled had people complaining about Lamictal inhibiting Adderall's effects.

this was the source i read http://www.psycheducation.org/depres...ds/LamRash.htm

im sorry about all those side effects you had , those are extremely rare


lamictal helps a lot of people with no side effects(including me , 300mg daily)



adderal had the same effect on me before and after


some people just need more than stimulants
