Health QuestionsCategory: TreatmentsVomiting… repeat dose?
Crystal asked 3 years ago

Hi,  
 
I’ve been feeling really sick a couple of times recently (think there’s a bug doing the rounds) and I was wondering how you know whether to repeat a dose if you’re sick. How long is long enough for the lamotrigine to get into your system?
 
I’m new to this drug & am worried because as it’s an anti epilepsy drug could missing a dose through sickness cause a fit of some kind?
 
I though it was easier to ask before I have the problem! I get an upset stomach quite easily so best to know…
 
Thanks

Re: Vomiting… repeat dose?
Ready to be grossed out?
 
If you can see the pill in the puke (and it won’t necessarily be on top, bear this in mind), take a fresh one.
 
If you can’t, then you’re probably fine apart from, like, throwing up.  
 
Double check this with your doctor, since every med has different absorbtion times.
