> Have you? Do you know where? Id like to read. Both are regularly checked in my case and fine(so far). If what you have read is true I may go 107.5 Do they mean low dose by augmentation? I wont go off though. Being suicidal is no fun and probably more dangerous!

High dose lithium can adversely affect the health of the kidneys, but this is only in the long (years) term and only with high doses. High doses are often needed to control bipolar disorder, so it is a troublesome effect, which needs to be weighed against how dangerous the manias are. An alternative is antipsychotics (particularly if sedative), but they can cause tardive dyskinesia in the long term. I don't know about anticonvulsants, but the members of this class of medications are typically very different from each other.
