18 Jun 2015 I wish I had started sooner. It's the only thing that's controlled my depression and anxiety. I notice more hypomanic symptoms now but being away from the depression is such a relief that it doesn't bother me.

02 Mar 2015 I have been on lithium for 35 yrs. had a breakdown when my identical sister died.I tried twice in that period of time to stop it and I got a mini break down.Iwill never get off it again.But i would like to go down to one because of all these side effects.Of course I will be asking my dr. about it,but I wanted to know if my feelings about these side effects are being aggravated by lithium.

11 Aug 2012 It is effective for keeping me level. I hate the chronic diarrhea and thefact that it dries me out so much.

19 Dec 2011 I have just started Lithium, after trying MANY other drugs for my bipolar/mania. SO far I feel it is working, I am worried about the weight gain as I have eating disorders as well and am afraid of it very much. I do feel better since I started the Lithium as I had just gotten over a horrible manic episode even being medicated so I switched to Lithium. I am hoping for great results, so far so good!
