... depression severe depression mildbipolar
Yes. When I started taking it (for Trigeminal Neuralgia) I didn't know how much to take. I started with 800mg per day. It did cause me severe drowsiness. I went to a high school cheerleader state championship. I was in an arena with a couple thousand screaming teenage girls, I was in an uncomfortable chair, and I couldn't stay awake.
I'm on 400mg per day now, and I don't have the drowsiness side effect.
