Oh crap. I've been considering increasing my dose for a while and your post is my confirmation to go for it. I'm way below the therapeutic window and have resisted increasing because it really is a pork-o-genic drug and it really has been good enough - but maybe not optimal. I never got to the point of getting over the uncomfortable side effects of higher doses and I have hypothyroidism and I worry about it.

But if getting more with the program and taking an amount that is actually therapeutic - well, maybe it will kick it into the next level. So I'm gonna take an extra pinch slowly and see how it goes.

Thanks for the website - very interesting and heartening how beneficial lithium is for so many conditions.

You mentioned that you were on two other meds - I believe Synthroid (I am too along with Cytomel) and Rivsterol(?) - what is that? - Barbara
