Kelly, the plasma half-life of a single dose of Lamictin® is about 24 hours. It takes about 1-2 weeks to reach a steady-state in the plasma, so I guess you can safely say that it will be eliminated from the body in 2-4 weeks. If you want exact figures you will have to wait till I get back so that I can contact the company that produces it. Good luck.
