Re: My doctor wants to try me on lithium

Yes. Pro's - calms racing thoughts, quells anger. Cons - makes you ridiculously thirsty, and toxicity happens quickly if you don't keep up your water intake eg. Muscle weakness, stomach pains, nausea. I find sodium valporate (epilim) works just as well, but without the side-effects.

Absolutely hated it. It made me tired

10mg dose. Absolutely hated it. It made me tired, but I couldn't sleep. Made me extremely jittery and restless- was unable to sit in a chair for any length of time.
Best thing I did was stop taking it. I switched to sodium valporate (epilim) which actually helps.
