lamotrigine / lamictal med question

yesterday i was increased to 150 mg of lamotrigine/lamictal, i was fine last night and all morning, i took a nice nap midday and then around 2 i started to feel all jittery inside. now, i can barely stay still, and when i do stop (like right now to write) my body physically hurts. i've done a lot around the house and with the kids, so i'm doing anything bizare, just moving fast paced, though it feels like my body wants to go faster than i am / can go. it's so annoying. i called the doctor earlier to ask if this is a side effect of the new dose and if i should cut the dose back down, and they said she calls back in the evenings, which i was fine with but said that the call to be no later than 9pm, and so far, it's almost 830 and no call. if i don't hear back i am just going back to 100mg for the night, which is what i was on prior to yesterday. do u think the lamictal is causing this?
