In reply to Lithium questions, posted by olysi79 on August 30, 2004, at 15:31:24

Hi chemist, upon further evaul, I decided to see if you could answer these if you ahve time because you have always been a great resource. I so concerned because I've been taking trileptal for awhile but developed a small rash so my PDOC wants me off of it pronto, I'm tapering slow and am really going to miss this, it worked well for me. Trileptal hasn't been a miracle cure but I certainly have liked it alot because it mellows out my moods and it also has an anti-anxiety effect on me. my PDOC thinks I'll like Lithium but I'm not convinced... I'm not BP I but more BP II or trudging that way on the spectrum, and have never had a psychotic mania... I think she wants to try this instead as she knows how sensitive I am to the idea of weight gain and good old depakote apparently is worse in this regard. I really hope the Lithium works the same as my beloved trileptal.
