It's not a real switch to mania, it's just temporary, till it wears off.

Insomnia, yes, if you take it too close to when you want to sleep. But you can actually exploit the withdrawal effects, ie. lethargy when the dose wears off, for sleep.

The problem is that sometimes they leave you too tired to stay up and work, but too wakeful to go to sleep.
