Just want to clarify that in the twenty
years or so that I have been taking lithium
and my supplementals, I have never had a
breakthrough episode. So, in my case at least
listening to my doctor and taking my drugs
on a regular schedule has paid off, with
the exception of a little tinkering which
my doctor has frowned on but has not been
restrictive. I have a wise doctor.

This recent catastrophe, was due to the
corrupted supply of lithium. It was evident
almost from the first pill -- I felt no
side effects and assumeed that this was due
to the superiourity of the "generic" drug.

Five months later, the mania and depression
proved that this was not the case. Moreover, my dr.'s call to the pharmacist to get the old version and the recovery from that intervention was sufficient to bring me back to normality.

So, this is just to clarify the in my case
at least, breakthroughs have not just been accidental failures, but directly caused to a physical problem with the meds in this case.
There *are* breakthroughs, and causes are usually
and mostly due to not taking your drugs, among other causes.

Take your drugz and listen to your doctor.
