I started lithium about two - three months ago. at first i was hesitant about starting it due to it's precautions. but now i am doing just fine on it. i am on an even plateau now. the other meds in my cocktail are lexapro 20 mg, respirdal 4 mg. and lithium slow release @ 1125 mg.

I will say that a month into it, on a non-therapeutic dose i got really anxious. i had extreme racing thoughts and i felt as if i was going crazy, this lasted for a week. i talked to my p-doc and we were both confused by this. because what i was expierencing was not a side effect of the lithium.

so he increased the dosage form 900 mg to 1125mg. and i have been doing fine ever since. and although i have been on it for a short time i am happy with the results. the only bad thing is the diarhea, which should go away in a few weeks.

hope this is helpful.
