I had no trouble withdrawing from lithium at all
and this is after more than 20 years of taking it
daily. BUT when I hit the "below narrow therapeutic index" I became very ill - it was
a struggle to get out of that illness - 30 days.

Not all ADs or APs are the same with regard
to withdrawal. I understand from reading the
net for 5 years that many people have trouble
withdrawing fromt he SSRIs - a completely different class from mood-stabilizers, and my
friend once tried getting off tricyclics and
definitely needed a long "wash-out period" to
avoid withdrawal syndrome.

So, perhaps another variable to be considered
in addition to the ones i listed, is the *type*
of drug.
