For the first week nothing. The second week I felt a little spacey and drowsy. At the end of my second week at 900mg it started working and the drowsy spacey went away. I had about a 90% drop in symptoms that only lasted 5 days. (BPII) Attempts to raise the dose higher caused unbelievable agitation so bad that I had to stop completely. I have yet to find anyone who has experienced this like I have. The doctor was a little confused that it caused this agitation, it was a feeling like I was going to blow up-like I was under pressure and all from lithium if you can blieve it. It's supposed to stop this sort of thing I thought. Anyway good luck with your trial.
