Not sure who This question was directed to so I thought I would answer it just for the heck of it.
I have idiopathic generalized epilepsy. So they don’t know why I have generalized or any other type of seizures for that matter but I have mostly tonic clonic and to a much lesser extent Focal Aware & impaired seizures which used to be called Simple & Complex Partials. I’ve also had numerous bouts of Status Epilepticus and also Absence Seizures which are Generalized seizures that start on both sides of the brain usually simultaneously. They used to be known as Petie mal seizures. When I first started having Tonic Clonic Seizures they were known as Major Motor Seizures. My current medications are 162 mg of phenobarbital and 1000 mg of Carbatrol extended release which is a time released brand name form of Carbamazepine.
Wishing everyone a seizure free future,
Jake

Hello Jake,
Lamotrigine has no side effects of drowsiness or memory problems. I have never experienced either those problems and I have never been told to watch out for either of them. Rash is the only Side effect I have been told that I should watch out for or would occur.
