In reply to Lithium augmentation?, posted by Dave1 on May 2, 2002, at 0:00:18

Hi Dave,
I've had PHENOMENAL results with Lithium as an augmentor to Remeron 45 mg.. The Remeron first started working well for 2 months then pooped out, as all ADs do for me. Adding 600 mg of Li revved things up splendidly. I haven't noticed any tiredness from it at all. I also suspect that my problem is Bipolar II rather than the unipolar depression I've been diagnosed and treated for 15 years, so the positive Lithium results could be due to finally addressing the Bipolar symptoms rather than looking at it only as an augmentor to the AD. - BarbaraCat
