I was my doc todaty.  Most will be stabile  120for the parnate, T3, topamax 100mg, and my 4 sleep med)
We decided to keep taking with klonipin.  On Valiun20mg.  I srated having a comversation about something alse and end talking about how the lack of water will destroy huamn life.. I stay intellectual with me using resoucees.  That was at te doctor's office - ever since I stated 20valium.  SO no more Valium.Insread we are taking more haldol and adding (for me) a small dose
of zyprexa at 10mg.
Once we are certain all the combos are physcally safe, I think we are going to sert lithium again.Last time, I wasn't just moving out my It had just been a fwe week biutI was still drinking viodka and everclear.  NO model life-style.  NO more dances or pictues at clubs,or photo shoots.  I would have to pay for things again. I had to quit  because I was becoming psycohtic all the time.  I had few friends but one told me I was about to lose everything.  MY eyes sold pictures, nut becuae you couldn't see life during sense I should have been alive.
I am nervous about it was during the last trial of lithium,  I became suicidal.  I made an attepmt , I was only unconcous about 18 hours.  It was minor.
Has this happen to anyone else starting lithium

Quiet pain,

I can tell from your writing that you're suffering right now. I'm sorry to hear it.

I imagine your doctor made it clear to you that you can't drink alcohol with psych meds. That alone could have caused the problems you had with the lithium last time. If you're going to try lithium again, that's great, but with anything you're on, you have to not drink.

There's no need to be nervous, just be aware. If you're afraid that you might get suicidal, keep the number of the suicide hotline by the phone so you can call them at a moment's notice. 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433) It's important you tell your loved ones what's going on too, so they can keep an eye on you. "Hey, I'm starting lithium, I'm nervous. Keep an eye on me." I'm sure they'll be more than happy to oblige, considering the alternative.

Good luck to you. I hope it actually all goes smoothly. I bet it will.
