Not mine - loved the Edgar Alan Poe one though;
when I first had a depressive episode, I
said that I did not believe it was possible
for a human to experience such a fall into
a dark abyss without the use of psychedelic
drugs :-)

It's not a study -- it is something he says
in one of his Guide books for the public
available at Amazon.com; I have also seen
lithium holiday suggestions for chronic
lithium users;

Well, that's good and it is also very encouraging
as I like my doctor and hate to have cynical
fears about my treatment. If 600mg was good
for you maybe it would be for me; it's hard to
believe though that the recent "generic" brand
I took was that much lower.

Here is a very good site on lithium toxicity:


"Virtual Hospital" Lithium Toxicity - Seminars

also take a look at at the IGSLI group. Dr.
Schou is the pioneer of lithium as you probably
know:

and look at the "Intoxication" articles.
