Hello Lin,
Well, among possible side-effects people have described while taking Lamictin, nausea is surely possible. as is fever.  What's slightly puzzling to me is that side-effects are usually most troubling relatively soon after we take the dose, when the blood levels are at their highest.  So I wonder when you take your second dose of the day ; and also whether you may be taking any other drugs which might either have similar side-effects, or might affect how the lamictin is absorbed or excreted.
On the whole, its best to discuss such concerns directly with your prescribing doctor, who would know much more about your general condition and other factors that might influence these symptoms, and can consider how importan tthe Lamictin is to your treatment.
