> Just out of curiosity, what lithium level is best for you?

**I do best on 600mg Li Carbonate. Went up to 750mg and it was fine. 900 and up and I start getting tremors and thirst. I try to keep it down to where I don't put on more weight and don't get a flattened emotional affect. There are times of extra stress when I could and should probably take more, but I try to keep my thyroid levels steady becuase hypothyroidism is quite depressing in it's own right.

It also has to be Li Carbonate. Tried Li Orotate twice, believing the hype and hoping to lessen some of the thyroid problems Li was exacerbating. But no go. It took a little longer with Li Orotate, but I hit a mania anyway. I also take a very small amount of Cymbalta (12 pellelts of SNRI), fish oil and many nutrients, and keep on top of all my other hormones, but it's the lithium that keeps me sane.
