I don't have much time to type right now, but I'd like to share my story with you. Lithium has done more for my depression than any AD has. I'm bipolar, and it keeps my highs under perfect control. It also helps considerably with my depression. Currently I'm on 600mg of lithium a day. I believe that's a low dose but I don't weigh very much. The only side affects I've experienced is nausea, which does not exist when I take lithium with ginger root (available at any health food store), and acne. I go to the dermatologist for injections for this, and it's a pain being 31 and having pimples. That's it for side affects. I wouldn't be scared of it. I hope the best for you,
