I do hold quite tightly onto the lithium 300mg. It has helped reduce the intensity of episodes. I find that lower dose zinc and magnesium supplementation also help.

It's funny. On lithium alone, I seem to do "ok" for say a month. Then I start to sink (usually brought on by some sort of external stressor). It can happen quite quickly and result in severe symptoms. Usually then, I start a low dose antidepressant, which usually helps after 1-2 weeks. The problem is that if I continue taking the antidepressant, I start to feel ongoing impairment. So, I usually stop the antidepressant after I start to feel better. I continue taking the lithium, and usually I can continue to feel "normal" for a few weeks or months.

I understand that I should continue taking the antidepressant. But, my strategy has seemed to work in terms of keeping me most functional.
