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. My dreams are busy and very active and I wake up (after 7-8 hours) totally exhausted. ## Its my third month on leximal 10mg and im suffering manic episodes, crying alot, walking in circles. I want to know do i need an increase in dosage?
