Hi Chiron,

I suppose I could call myself BipolarII. I have been on Lithium for some 25 years altogether. First as monotherapy for about 20 years, then with Olanzapine; first at 5 mg and more recently at 10 mg.

I guess I blame my Lithium for the flat affect I have, makes me drink a lot of water in the morning (but that could be the Olanzapine), and generally takes away the fun in my life. I take it at 900 mg nocte. I imagine you would not consider such a high dose. My Lithium blood levels are 0.8 mMol/litre, within the therapeutic range. I have to say that I have stayed out of hospital on Lithium. But I have not had a lot of fun.

.....Alan
