Only taking 450mg Lithium. 5 - 10mg Adderall XR.
I have found that the Lithium has taken away my sex drive. Probably a side effect of being on a mood stabilizer?
Also - I have found the Adderall positive, but it has made me OCD. Really OCD.
I know I need to up the Lithium to 600mg a day (which is what my doc wants).
I still have diareaha - guessing its from the Lithium, could it be from the Adderall? or Adderall plus lithium causing the explosive bathroom issues? Would going up to 600mg make the bathroom issues worse? Does that ever get better?
I should be able to tolerate the low dose of Adderall. I guess a higher dose of Lithium would make the OCD symptoms of Adderall go away?
Love the Adderall, but sometimes have a hard time sleeping too.
