Can Excess Vitamin E Cause Depression?

Just wondering if anyone has any information that excessive dosages of vitamin E can cause depression? I have been taking 800-1200 IU of Vitamin E per day for about two years to try to detoxify my body from smoking cigars.

I noticed recently (last couple of months) that I have become depressed. I thought I was depressed due to lack of sunlight now that winter is here.

Well I lost my mac card this week after I ran out of Vitamin E and I have stopped taking it temporarily. I noticed that my mood has elevated markedly.
I am guessing this could be an effect of stopping the vitamin E.

However, I never knew Vitamin E could cause depression/anxiety in excess amounts. Anyone have any info on this?
