Lamictal & valium

05/04/2009

Question:

My lamictal(400mg)had not been causing the vision for some time. I have needed more valium last month. Last week when I took the A.M. dose of lamictal & the blurred vision returned. Is the valium causing the lamictal level to rise? I take .5 valium when needed.

Answer:

There are no known drug interactions between Lamictal and Valium. However, Valium in higher doses can cause blurred vision.
