In reply to Too little Lithium vs. just enough? experiences, posted by barbaracat on July 13, 2005, at 16:34:05

Too little versus too much:

- lighter body feeling
- easier breathing
- less sleep
- more skin sensitivity
- higher libido
- more energetic
- clearer head
- less diarrhea

But on too low - mania and psychotic depression

Too much:

- fuzzy head
- leaded body
- head heat waves
- more diarrhea
- chest tightness
- swollen face (probably thyroid effect)
- incoordination
- psychological disturbance
- more sleep and lethargy
- great thirst
- dry mouth and membranes

Too high: tremor

Above is my personal experience. I once
had seizures and stroke [i think, my dr.
said it was withdrawal from K] but I don't
know if I can attribute that to lithium
toxicity - it was very very hot, and that
is a factor. Maybe it was complex.

Coping - drink lots of water, and keep up
the salt and potassium.
