>If you happen to have psoriasis which I do, lithium is generally not considered to be a good choice; however, the effects in this department have been very minor.!1148425389&ei=Dl53Su_gH8_clAfO1KmQCQ&usg=AFQjCNFu0Tyl7dHRwtSKNZ9w1z6UlfJi2A&sig2=4jwFEJNoAoDWJODcM0UOKg

>So you mentioned you were in patient for a time. I'm assuming that you are out now and doing better? Are you still trying to tweak your meds to find the optimal solution?

I am better..Yes, I am trying to tweak medications
still. I went into my medicine cabinet and popped 25mgs of Zoloft that I had sitting around. I could not wait for my new psychiatrist to make a decision. I swear, 4 days into it(actually today I took 50) I am feeling better. So if he does not suggest that I get back on zoloft in combination with depakote and zyprexa, I'm going to have to tell him what I'm doing. I have also been taking a low dose of lithium, which I believe is helping as well.

>I'm more concerned about the thyroid and kidney issues that I alluded to in my previous posting.

I think if you are in good health and take good care of your body, you should not have to worry about those issues. And, maybe at some point you will find that you can lower the dose of lithium some and still find it to be effective. You are already at a reasonably low dose. I'm sure you're aware of this already.

How do you like Nortriptyline? Any noticeable side effects?

So I guess you dose the Lithobid one time a day. Do you do it in the morning or evening?

That's great that you were able to discontinue seroquel successfully. I think p docs nowadays are a little atypical happy.
