Welcome to the forum
I am glad you joined us.
Everyone react differently to meds. One may work for one person, while it may not work for another. Or once person may also experience the side effects while another person may experience less or no side effects at all. Our bodies are different and react differently.
Do you attend therapy as well? It helps and you learn lots of coping techniques that can help together with meds.
I hope the Lithium and Lamictal will work for you.
