I was on a low dose of lithium for about 7 months, and didn't realize that I gained a ton of weight from it or that it probably negatively impacted my depression.
Two months ago I developed bad edema and cellulitis, so w/ the support of my pdoc at the time, went off of lithium. Since then, even though I no longer take it, I've had numerous health issues (bladder, stomach, gastritis) and my mental health has been pretty bad too.
Has anyone else suffered side effects/problems after stopping lithium? Even months later?
