Well, we're talking about maintenance here, not acute treatment, right?

My pdoc, Julie Tremblay, an eminent psychiatrist at Québec city, told me once that most of her clients were doing fairly well at a blood dosage between 0.4 and 0.6. So according to her the old 0.8 mark has to be reviewed. So why the new range? Tolerability AND compliance, she said. And if that is not enough then a "low" dose of an atypical anti-psychotic will be just perfect.

So to respond directly, with not enough lithium there is a lack of effecicacy. Too much and i feel bloated, diahrea, confused and shaking. Hum remember 0.8 dosage?
