I don't know. It is at least normal to feel better or worse, but perhaps not if you feel it without reason.

I actually had a small episode of feeling better when I took low dose lithium, in the form of the orotate salt. My understanding is that the orotate is much better absorbed.

I agree that it is important to feel good (not necessarily high) at times, because it gives you hope.
