When I first started taking it I was taking up to 160 (80mg) 2x/day then down to 120 (60) 2x/day for the rest of the time. I was manic and it definetly worked for that, but I was having side effects that made me stop it. It was a very good med aside from the side effects.
I would have my right side of my face stiffen uo where I had to take something else to counteract it. Then I would have a stiffening from my face all the way down to my shoulder. But it would go away after taking another med for it.
This is not to scare you but you are taking a lower dose than I was, and not everyone reacts the same way. If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to ask.
