I took Lamictal for 2 weeks at the lowest dose and developed the rash commonly caused by the drug.

I also developed them on my back and chest.

I also am experiencing swollen lymph glands. Overall though it has helped a lot, and the side effects are very mild compared to other medicines I have tried.
