Utah woman had potentially fatal reaction to her anxiety meds

23-year-old Kayla Nelson from Utah has been diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson syndrome after taking Lamotrigine, a drug meant to treat her depression and anxiety, for only three weeks. The rare and serious disorder causes the skin to burn from the inside out, leaving blistering rashes on the body that could potentially cause blindness. Nelson is being treated in the University of Utah Burn Center and will need several weeks of therapy before she can work again. Her family has warned about the potential risks associated with this medication and advised stopping the drug immediately if any rash is noticed.
