Eight patients rechallenged with lamotrigine after initial exposure which resulted in a skin rash are reported. On reintroduction of the lamotrigine, six of the patients had no recurrence of the rash. Of the other two patients, one had the occurrence of a mild fluctuating and qualitatively different skin rash on rechallenge. The other patient had developed a dose-related rash on initial challenge resulting in a dose reduction. The first attempt to re-increase the dose resulted in reappearance of the rash which again disappeared on dose reduction. However a further attempt to re-increase the dose did not result in reappearance of a rash. It is suggested that patients who experience a rash but good therapeutic response to lamotrigine might be considered for re-dosing.
