I think it is possible that what you are feeling is the Li. It only takes 4 days to stabilize the blood level of Li, so it is possible that you are at (or close to) where you'd be feeling its therapeutic effects.

As an augmenting agent, you can get away with a much lower dose of Li. Pdoc says that blood levels of .4-.6 are sufficient for augmenting (higher is needed for bipolar).

My pdoc also says that if you are having success with it, it is likely that you will continue to do so (unlike some of the others like SSRI's which can stop working after a while).

I've got my fingers crossed for you!
