Worried about Lithium

Posted by sheilac on June 15, 2011, at 6:11:32

I'm just plain scared of taking Lithium. I need mood stabilization and I also need an antidepressant.

I also have a mild case of ADD and can get by on a small amount of Adderall in the morning. The Adderall is good for my ADD, but bad in the long run for my mood stability.

I thought I could sub Wellbutrin for Adderall, but at 75mg of Wellbutrin I was asleep in 2 hours. Doc thinks a higher dose will just do the same. I was hoping for an extended version of Wellbutrin.

I worry about going to 600mg of Lithium. I feel dull and have memory problems an worry about my kidneys. It makes me thirsty.

Is 600mg of Lithium a lot? Am I going to get fat?
