Man, I so completely agree with this. What a struggle. My initial tremendous response to Li is now not as tremendous. Sometimes, when I feel really wound up, and I take at least 150, it calms me right down, and is a godsend. Today makes two weeks that I've been trying it. There have been times these last couple of days that I've felt as nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof. But I've only been taking a small amount.

I guess I really need to try upping the dose to see if that'll be okay. Today I'm almost up to 600mgs. I chip away at the tabs throughout the day to try and even it out, even though they're supposed to be sustained release (damned fast metabolism strikes again.)

Plus, today was just my second day back at work after taking two months off, and truth be told, I don't feel all that much better now than I did two months ago. At least I can joke about it a little bit. Like saying 'what's the office pool up to on how long I'll stay'. See, I tried to go back a couple of weeks ago, and lasted five minutes before my anxiety attack had me heading for the door.

Anyway, I'm still trying to tweak this thing too.

Effexor XR 150mgs
Remeron 15mgs (for sleep)
Lithium (around 500mgs)

That's my story and I'm stickin to it... til I find a better one.
