I might be asking my doc for lithium. Well, I will be discussing BP with my new pdoc. I respect him enough to hear what he might suggest. That's more accurately phrased.

At what point ever did you have lithium levels measured by blood draw? Did you do this at 450mg? You know I want to go low dose. But I now want to be adequately treated if he feels it's an issue.

I thought you had some blood work done at some point. I apologize if I am mistaken.

Are you getting that geodon to work for you yet?


> Still taking Geodon. Good for my depression, sleep, mood, etc. Bad because I still have anxiety.
> I remember when I took as little as 300mg of Lithium I would feel a nice warm, relaxing feeling. Not high, but really content. Not too happy, but able to deal with things. I guess it was really helping my anxiety.
> Is this normal? When my doc tried to dose me up to a minimum theraputic dose I got really depressed and stopped taking it. Plus the higher dose was causing some hair loss, and a few pounds (probably water weight).
> Klonopin just isn't the same. It helps me a lot.
> But I kinda miss that nice, warm contented feeling from low dose lithium.
> Is this weird?
