> thanks, I suppose my pdoc would presribe something else. Yes, I've been diagnsed as BP II. Have you heard if less that 900mg daily is enough for anti-manic and AD effect? Thanks a bunch

That is very individual. Some folks crash and burn with a blood level less than .6 mEQ. I got by (antimanic-wise) with a blood level of much less than that for many years. Another thing I hadn't thought of is.. do you take all of your lithium at once at bedtime or do you spread it out during the day? I found less side effects by taking all of it at bedtime. Mornings were a little dazed, but I felt better overall.
