Re: LITHIUM, as the sole AD?

Hi Sunnely.

Your post was extremely informative. But do you have any experience or knowledge of how effective Li is as an AD? I have discontinued the Celexa, and after two days, feel so much calmer and quieter inside. But of course I am a little worried that I will not feel too well without a traditional AD. I only seem to respond to SSRIs. Things like tricyclics, remeron and serzone were not of much use to me. And wellbutrin causes awful night sweats, the drenching kind.

I guess my question is, are there some folks (with treatment resistant depression, BP 2, BPD) who get AD effect from Li without a traditional AD on board? I know everyone is different, but does any one have any experience with this?
