Hi Flipsactown.

Thanks for responding.

> I started taking 300mg lithium 7 days ago. I am also on 100mg prozac, 90mg remeron, 400mg lamictal.

Wow! Those are some whopping dosages.

Did your doctor give you any indication how long it would take for lithium to work?

> You must not have seen an earlier post from me to you regarding lithium. Did you not see it?

No. I must have missed it.

A few years ago, I did a little research on using lithium as an augmentor of antidepressants. The dosage range suggested was 300-600mg when used this way. The populations tested were generally unipolar. One thing that I found these studies had in common was that they reported improvements occuring between 3-10 days after adding lithium.

I hope lithium works out for you. If not, would you consider using a stimulant like Adderall?
