It has not been my experience, thank God,
though i confess that stopping lithium brings
you to dangerous head states (not as dangerous
as clonazepam).

The psychiatrists who have told you this,
must have observational reasons? And not just
something they have read? Many variables may
play into this -- how long the person is left
in a psychotic non-lithium state, how much lithium and at what rate the patient is re-loaded;
how long and with what adjunct (like a benzo)
to calm the possible mania? Etc.
