I'm surprised that your doc started you on 100 mg right away. Lamictal is a medication that should be started at a low dose and slowly increased over time. I've been on it for 1 1/2 years and it took a few months before I was up to 100mg. I'm now at 200 mg a day after coming down from 300 slowly after the birth of my daughter. I had to increase during pregnancy due to increased blood volume. Prior to me pregnancy, Lamictal was the first medication that really worked for me. I was diagnosed 3 years ago and have been on Zyprexa (serious weight gain), Depakote, Lithium, Topamax, Seroquel and even had ECT (though I stopped treatments before results could be seen.) Just watch the itchy skin and I hope it works for you!
