600mg Li too much...

Posted by sheilac on June 17, 2011, at 8:37:53

After a few days on 600mg of Lithium I became a zombie. I was tired and irritable (probably because I was so down and lethargic).

Last night I took 300mg and I feel much better today. Still drugged, but functioning.

My blood level at 450mg was only .4, which is why my doc upped me to 600mg. But I just can't tolerate that much.

Is low dose like 150mg or 300mg beneficial for the long haul, especially for someone like me that is prone to depression?

I can't take anti-depressants (they make me hypo-manic in the long run).

I thought I had heard that low dose Lithium helps with depression. It doesn't have to be the "theraputic" dose?
