Well, I'm still taking the generic for Lithonate, which I guess is plain ol' lithium carbonate. Big Brother HMO's don't encourage any new-fangled meds, I guess.

I expressed concern about raising the levels from my current 600mg per day any higher because I don't want to incur any renal damage or otherwise. He suggested taking a full dose at one time, preferably at night. Apparently some new data has shown that taking the full dose at once rather than spreading it out avoids alot of the tremors, renal damage and otherwise. I don't quite get it, but was loath to waste any more of my allotted 20 minutes every 2 months appointment time by asking silly time consuming questions. So, I ask you, my friends - anyone have any data on combined dosing for lithium?
