Thanks for the reply..
Well, your forgetfulness that you complain of is actually more of a lack of concentration and focus , for which your psychiatrist has rightly started you on a pschostimulant such as ADDERALL ( amphetamine salts ) , but since you are a case of rapid cycling bipolar disorder , so you have been put on 2 mood stabilizers , namely lamictal and Trileptal , 1 anti psychotic such as abilify and 1 anti depressant such as prozac , and 1 anxiolytic such as ativan , this regime compriing of all these drugs makes for a good treatment strategy for rapid cycling bipolar disorder, but , i believe your lack of concentration and focus , which you self describe as forgetfulness , are probably due to the side effect of LAMICTAL , WHICH CAUSES decreased concentration and focus as one of it's side effects .
Kindly see the link below..

So, what we can do now is that you can discuss with your doctor 2 possibilities to overcome your forgetfulness, aka decreased concentration and focus , and these are -- first possibility is to switch over to Adderall XR , that is extended release version of adderall , acting throughout the day , better than adderall ( plain ) that you are taking as of now , so this will take care of your forgetfulness.
Second possibility could be that since lamictal is the one causing forgetfulness as a side effect , so you can ask your doctor to reduce the dose to half of what you are taking right now , that is 600 mg / day .
A third possibility can also be there , which can be brought to use if first two possibilities do not help as much as expected , and this possibility is to apply both first and second possibilities together that is , switching over to adderall xr from adderall and reducing the dose of lamictal to half of present dose ,that is 600 mg / day.
So, kindly discuss this with your treating psychiatrist / doctor and get started on the changes in your regime , and i am quite this will take care of your forgetfulness.
I hope this helps..
I wish you all the best..
