I have taken this for 5 years for mood swings and depression. When I am at 600mg twice a day, my salt goes too low even if I salt everything I eat.I have used this with Cymbalta,or Zoloft, Trazadone to name a few. My moods leveled out really well but because of the low salt problem, I'm being weaned off it to start with Lamictal.
