Thanks for your concern. I have been
reducing 1/3 of my lithium dose on Sundays
for the past 5 weeks or so; many advantages
to that, but last night i hit a point where
maybe the lithium was too low -- insomnia,
agitation, jitteriness, and the dread
"electric eels". So, i took a Xanax, as
my dr. said to do so if i felt bad or
anxious and went to sleep.

OK this a.m. and back to regular scheduling;
I still had diarrhea, though... hmmm after
eating something sweet. I think it may
be a leftover effect of the K withdrawal --
it did something to my brain, including
temperature screw up. I'll skip a lithium
in longer intervals.

But, I am ok. I got to my dr. every year
when i have to renew my drugs.
