    Lactimal Rash

    I'm worrying because I got a rash from lactimal and had to stop taking it. I went to the doctor and it's not the fatal one but I am allergic to it. I'm worried because I think it's what made me feel better and now I'm going off it and my psychiatrist isn't giving me anything else for a while.
