Lithium Update

Posted by Noa on December 23, 1999, at 0:11:02

I don't know if people want to hear my updates, but it helps me to post them.

Now in the middle of week 3, and 2 days at increased dosage (went from 900 to 1200: two pills in am, two in pm). My mood is holding steady, perhaps a bit more personable at work, but motivation still lagging. However, the thinking is back. I have started having ideas about stuff at work. The trick is to not jump into anything I am not ready to follow through on. Motivation and initiative to get things done is still a problem. I have been wasting a lot of time, although less glaringly wasteful activities, and more "makework", like getting caught up in looking up work-related resources on the web and printing out pages, etc.
The only possible reaction to the increased lithium that I notice is that after I take my evening dose of serzone, I become a zombie much faster than before. I went to bed at 8:30 tonight, could NOT keep my eyes open. Of course, I was up at 11:45 (to use bathroom) and felt too agitated to go back to sleep. The bathroom trips are still very frequent, but haven't noticed an increase with the increased dose. It is annoying, especially at night because it is disruptive to my sleep.
