substitute for lithium?

Posted by Roslynn on May 20, 2022, at 14:39:21

Hi all,

I had to stop lithium due to kidney problems. I was taking it to augment my other depression meds (not for mania).

So far, I haven't been able to find a decent replacement. I'm on Latuda but it doesn't seem to be helping. Lamictal gives me cognitive problems. My mood is sliding down each week.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? My other meds are effexor, latuda, seroquel, ativan, and ritalin. Diagnosis is major depression, OCD, and anxiety.

Thank you for any help!
