> > I had not thought about the capsule form... So when do you take the 2nd capsule? An hour before your next meal that day? Also, do you split your lithium dose or take it all with breakfast? Sorry for the questions, but if I need to take lithium again I want all the info to combat this problem that I can get! I have always taken a nighttime dose (either all or part) of lithium on an empty stomach....

Hi, thanks for responding. So, the "trick" is to take the Metamucil in the mornings all at once (the two capsules), and then wait the *one hour* wait before you eat... then make sure to take your lithium only with food (a meal)? Hey, if that would allow me to tolerate it (if I need to take it later), then that would be great!

THANKS
