Rosalyn - I think trying low dosage lithium is close to being a no-brainer. Just monitor kidney function before starting lithium, and then at regular intervals afterwards. Remember, this experiment will last no longer than two weeks if there is no response.


* Taking your entire dosage of lithium at night is less harmful to the kidneys than divided doses.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
