Hello and thank you for your question. I want to make sure, are you asking about Epleptin (Gabapentin)? I only ask because the medication that you spelled does not exist and there are a few medications with similar sounding names

May I use Epleptin after an allergic reaction to lamictin 10 years back? I currently use ciliate every 2n day as it helps anxiety but does push me into expressive episodes at times

Thank you for your response, I just wanted to make sure we were talking about the same medication as the names can be similar for different medications. You can use the Epleptin as it is very chemically different than Lamictin. Just because you are allergic to Lamictin does not mean you will be allergic to Epleptin. It is safe to use to lessen your anxiety and is not linked to Lamictin at all.

I hope this answers your question and gives you some guidance on this issue. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns as I am happy to assist and support you regarding this issue.
