well, i've been on the slow release formula of lithium for a few weeks now.. and i gotta say, 've seen no improvement.. in fact, i reckon it's gotten worse..
i've had virtually no sleep, and feel as tho i have morning sickness (no, i'm not pregnant)..
had blood tests which have identified the correct lithium levels, but i still feel poxy, so maybe you're right Ria... maybe the meds aren't so good for me. (thankyou wifey also)
i'll give it a bit longer then see about
changing from them, if they help my head in the long run, then i'll tolerate the insomnia, the feeling of being a cripple and the midnight upchucks ... etc..
has anyone got anything positive to say about
it? i know Lithium is an old drug and i'd expected a lot more people would have been on it.. especially here in the depression room... any advice you can give me please do! Especially if anyone here has been on it for a long time. meanwhile, i suppose i should ask the bipolar room too.
