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.

Comment:
I take it for Bipolar disorder along with Lexapro. Seems to work. I do have hair loss--but it is not from the medication. I have had it for years since having kids. I do think some people are more prone to hair loss. It is part of aging. This drug does work. Do I want to take drugs like this--of course not. For those of us with spouses and kids--our spouses and kids should not suffer wit ... Show Full Comment
