I have been on lithium for four years now.  I was 900mg and just reduced to 600mg because the blood level would go toxic and I would end up in the hospital.  At first I had somewhat slurred speech and shakey hands but it all went away.  I also gained about 15 pounds and that did not go away.  You are on a low dose so maybe weight won't be an issue for you.  Like most of psych drugs  side effects resolve themselves in 2-3 weeks, be sure and mention to doc.  Lithium for me has kept super manic attacks at bay. Lithium and I get along together.

Horse crazy,

I added this post to the lithium thread, I thought that was probably where you wanted it to go. I hope that you don't mind.

Hugs, Karen
