I think you're new here, if so, welcome!
This really depends on the person. I was put on 1200 mgs and it did absolutely nothing for my moods. What it did do was make me extremely fatigued. That doesn't mean that will happen to you, that's just my experience with it. IMHO, 300 mgs is an extremely low dose, does your doc plan to increase it? I've read here of people who've had no success with it and others (and some I've talked to) who swear by it. Depends on your body's chemistry I guess.
The MS I'm on now is Topamax (200 mgs, 100 am, 100 pm) and it works great for me. There's some issues for most people with cognitive dulling during the start-up phases, but my experience is that it goes away if you stick it out long enough.
I hope this has been of some help to you and good luck!
