Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is lamotrigine (Lamictal) and how does it work?

Lamotrigine (Lamictal) is a medication belonging to the anticonvulsant or antiepileptic family of drugs. A lamotrigine prescription works by slowing down electrical signals from the brain which trigger seizures. It’s also believed to help balance the natural chemicals within the brain.

What are the uses for lamotrigine (Lamictal)?

Most commonly, a Lamictal prescription is used to help control and prevent seizures.

As well, in some cases, a lamotrigine prescription can be given to help reduce extreme mood swings in adults with bipolar disorder.

How do you use lamotrigine (Lamictal)?

A Lamictal prescription is available as a tablet, an extended-release tablet, a chewable tablet or as a dissolvable tablet. All of these are to be taken orally. 

Instructions for consumption will be provided with your prescription, but all tablet forms can be taken with or without food. Only use whole tablets and never take more than your prescribed dosage, as it could increase your risks of negative side effects.

This medication dosage will need to be increased slowly over a period of time, and it could take months to find a dosage that is most effective for your needs. 

Don’t stop taking a lamotrigine prescription without first consulting with your doctor. Some conditions or side effects could worsen if the prescription is abruptly stopped. A doctor will usually gradually reduce the prescribed dosage to help minimize this. 

What are the side effects and risks of lamotrigine (Lamictal)?

Common side effects from taking a Lamictal prescription include:

  • Changes in coordination
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Skin rash
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Weight gain
  • Nasal congestion

These aren’t a cause for alarm, but your doctor should be notified if they persist.

However, in some rare cases, serious side effects may occur. These include:

  • Unusual bruising or bleeding
  • Fainting
  • Racing or irregular heartbeat
  • Muscle pain or tenderness
  • Signs of kidney problems (changes in urine volume, colour or frequency)
  • Vision problems
  • Severely stiff neck
  • Confusion
  • Tremor
  • Rashs on skin
  • Uncontrolled movements of muscles in legs, arms, face, neck, etc
  • Thoughts of self harm or suicide

If you begin to experience any of these side effects, you should seek immediate medical attention.

Additionally, some patients taking a lamotrigine prescription may begin to experience depression, severe changes in mood or suicidal thoughts. Talk to your doctor immediately if you believe you’re experiencing these side effects, so the doctor can help you monitor and manage these feelings.

Who should not take lamotrigine (Lamictal)?

This drug is not approved for use in children under the age of 2, because it severely increases their risks of negative side effects.

Talk to your doctor before starting a Lamictal prescription if you’ve ever experienced:

  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • A heart rhythm disorder

These conditions could increase your risk of experiencing negative side effects while taking a lamotrigine prescription.

Because this medication can cause dizziness or drowsiness, those who are performing tasks that require alertness (driving, operating machinery) shouldn’t use Lamictal. Drinking alcohol or using cannabis while taking this medication will also increase these symptoms.

Certain types of birth control (pills, patches, implants and injections) won’t work while taking this medication. Patients using these methods shouldn’t take a Lamictal prescription without first discussing birth control alternatives with their doctor. 

This medication can be harmful to unborn children, so it shouldn’t be taken by pregnant women unless absolutely necessary. If you’re breastfeeding, talk to your doctor about any potential risks for your nursing child, because lamotrigine can pass through breast milk.

However, untreated seizures can be harmful to both parent and child. Be sure to talk to your doctor before stopping this medication, because abruptly stopping the prescription could have negative side effects.
