Lamictal and Over-The-Counter medicine

Hey Everyone,

I am taking a trip in a few weeks and can't find any information on Lamictal and Dramamine/Bonine, the anti-nausea medicines. I looked on Crazy Meds and surfed around but didn't have a lot of luck. I also know that Lamictal doesn't mix well with a lot of over-the-counter medicines as well as other prescriptions. Can you give me some "don't take" suggestions as well as "safe to take"? I would sure appreciate it. I won't hold you to it as I know nobody here is a doctor.

HI SophieBoris,

I usually ask the pharmacist or I go to the url below, its drug interaction checker.

Thank you. I bookmarked this website so I can use it in the future. It just says alcohol interacts with Dramamine and not the Lamictal. Not a problem since I drink about once every two years.
