I took this medicine for 7 years for bipolar disorder. It made every mood intensify. It made drowsy like. i felt zombie like after taking it. I'm now off of it but found out that I was diagnosed incorrectly I have HORRIBLE anxiety problems not sure if its related but I have a horrible memory now. I'm so against medicine after being wrongfully diagnosed
