I took Lamictal for 2 years and went off the drug on June 15

This answer was rated:

I took Lamictal for 2 years and went off the drug on June 15 because my doctors believed it was lowering my immune system. A test after three months off the drug showed that my immune system went lower. We are now waiting for another three months to see a trend. How long does it take for an immune system to bounce back after stopping Lamital or a similar drug?

Dr. Nomi :

Hi,


It takes 3 months to 6 months for immune system to recover when you stop using the drug like Lamictal.

Dr. Nomi :

So wait a bit more weeks.

Customer:

Thanks. I am hoping that by December a blood test will show that I am ok once again.

Dr. Nomi :

Yep , as it also depends on individuals own unique system .

Dr. Nomi :

There are individual variations.some recover earlier others take time. Wish you good health.
