I've had a horrible time trying to get my son to take his meds!!! I finally gave up and gave in. But that didn't work either...WHAT A TOTAL NIGHTMARE THIS IS!! My head aches and my heart breaks! BUT HE AGREED TO TAKE THE LITHIUM. He's taken one pill and announced that it's "working". (Knock on wood) Yes, it's just one pill, but maybe there's "hope". Bipolar teens are a parents worst nightmare!!!
