I have a family history of JME but have never been diagnosed myself. After starting lamotrigine I have developed myoclonus which happens anywhere from 2-15 times a day. I've read many things about new onset myoclonus in people with seizures. Can you start having myoclonic epilepsy as a result of starting lamotrigine. I've also noticed that I am dropping things (I've always been clumsy but this is standing there holding my keys and I suddenly drop them, which I wouldn't have done in the past) and seem to be missing things that people are saying (I would swear I'm paying attention but completely missed a part of the conversation). Can lamotrigine lower my seizure threshold and cause new onset myoclonus?
