MH, saw your post above:

"I have been taking Lithium Carbonate for five months to augment Parnate. It seems to me that when I went up to 1200 mg I started to have side effects that I couldn't tolerate. My pdoc told me to go back down to 900 mg but they persisted".

>>>>> Geez, no wonder you had side effects...if you were only taking it as an augmenter, you may have been on a dose that was too high and unnecessary....I only take 300 mg/day....I doubt you'd have those side effects, AND you may get the augmentation you wanted at a much lower dose....just a thought.
