Leximal - side effects

I have been taking Leximal for the past 6 months and are suffering from excessive dreamings after the first month of taking it. Apparently sleeping disorders can be a side effect. Can this be the possible explanation for my dreaming.

I want to know do i need an increase in dosage?
