> went from 100 to 150 of lamictal...seem very forgetful...anyone else with this problem

Yes. Very much so. I had been taking 200 mg/day of Lamictal. I attempted to discontinue it because of the cognitive and memory impairments it produced. Unfortunately, I relapsed. I restarted it yesterday. It is possible that the magnitude of your memory impairments will lessen over time at 150 mg/day, but it is likely that they would reappear with future dosage increases. For me, 300 mg/day left me in a fog with greatly impaired memory and blunted cognition. I was little more than a vegetable during this time. However, I was also very depressed. Between the Lamictal and the depression, I became extremely stupid and numb to my surroundings.

If I were in your position, I would continue taking Lamictal and evaluate your memory function in a few weeks.
