See, I found lithium to have lots, I mean LOTS, of hit and miss. Not to take away from other's experiences, but lithium works good, (with all other meds Ritalin ) sometimes...and then sometimes I feel so psyched-out...freaked out, almost psychotic, on it. I have tried every dose..all different conditions. BUT, it works for some, and may work for you.

Carbamazepine, for me, puts a nice blanket on anxiety, and works great with stimulants. I was suggesting, not amphetamine, but if you can try
Ritalin with it? I find it seems to act a bit like a sedating antipsychotic, and shuts the weird 'chatter' in my head down, fast. It oddly can have both mild stimulating and sedating properties. You just really have to try it yourself.

Again, I was suggesting with Ritalin, if you can get it.
