In reply to how long does lithium take effect, posted by rjlockhart37 on August 26, 2020, at 21:04:23

For me lithium seems to kick in right away. I take 300 ER only 1x/wk and I said to my new doc it works but she wanted me to Increase it to every day. Every doc wants to change the formula that works even though they dont understand why it works. So I started with every other day and it made me so tired I knew it was too much. Maybe I just need the lowest dose of the Immediate release which would be 100mg.
I am ultra sensitive to most meds but that hit me pretty hard. Then I tried to go up to 300 every day before my MD appt to meet her expectations and I had troubling talking. Now Im back but taking maybe 2-3x/wk to just have a higher dose in my system w/o side effects.
I think Ill go down to 100 though. My call as I know how I feel, docs never will in psychiatry.
