i have also read that with lamictal one of the major concerns is "the rash"...it's the same as with adults, except children are more prone to it. the articles i have read say to simply watch your child for any rash accompanied by fever and the moment you see it, to get to the hospital.
it's rare, but potentially fatal if untreated. other than that, the limited number of study cases have shown no other side effects.
