> Do you mind i try lithium first, or is it hardcore medicine?

Lithium at low dosages can be very gentle. At higher dosages, there are cautions regarding thyroid and kidney function. However, close monitoring can minimize this risk.

I don't know what you consider to be a "hard-core" medicine. However, lithium can work magic for some people. If you suffer from schizoaffective disorder - bipolar type, I would hope that lithium helps you. There are a few studies of the use of lithium in schizophrenia, but I don't know how consistent the results have been.

I admire you greatly for your perseverance and tolerance for pain. These traits will help you find an effective treatment.
