I myself have the Lithium shakes, but they can get worse depending on the other meds you are on ( I currently am on 5 different ones) so can I ask what else you take?

There are other medications for Bipolar now.  Lithium was I think the first one and it sure helps a lot of people.  I am on Depakote and that works great.  I shake too, but I was told Depakote wasn't causing that.  See if he has something to help with the shakiness problem.  Seroquel sure made me shake more.  Had to go off that one.
