> Funny thing that the doctor suggested adding depakote with my increased lithium. I hope it will work. My doctor starts me slow. I started taking lithium at 150 and now up to 900 mg. I hope i get better because I believe next step is hospitalization

A little depakote might be a good idea here. Good doctor, as long as he doesn't keep on piling up the meds.

Make sure you get a hold of some Solgar l-methylfolate and take 400 to 800 mg. Both lithium and depakote have potential to reduce folate. If you take depakote, get some l-carnitine and take 500 to 1000 mg a day, depakote can deplete this too. Also, supplementing fish oil, a good multi, and some magnesium(glycinate, taurinate, or citrate) would be a good idea.

Hope you feel better soon!
