Started Lithium in Jan. of 2017. I was not in a manic episode, in fact I was depressed, but my psychiatrist wanted to try Lithium to further lift the depression. I started at 600mg at bedtime. Now I take 750mg at bedtime. It has seemed to be effective in that my depressive symptoms are improving. There are some side effects though. I feel a bit numb, a bit flattened out. Not 100% sure it's the Lithium but the onset seems to correlate with when I started. I've also been experiencing a mild tremor in my hands. More pronounced when I am stressed or tired.
