Lithium displays a "lithium-discontinuation lithium refractoriness" behavior for many people. One can remain in remission for years being treated with lithium monotherapy. However, when it is discontinued, and symptoms reappear - often within a matter of weeks or months - restarting lithium no longer works - ever. See the work of Robert M. Post, MD on PubMed on this issue.

If adding lithium to vortioxetine doesn't help, consider taking it taking it at 300 mg/day, especially if there is any kind of transient improvement beginning within the first 48 hours. When I first added lithium to a regime that included Parnate. This was the go-to strategy at Columbia Presbyterian if Parnate monotherapy failed. I felt a brief improvement within the first 12 hours of the first dose.

Besides, clinical psychiatrists see a much larger population of real patients than anyone on Psycho-Babble can claim to. Plus, they keep up with the most current news and confer with colleagues to find out their treatment experiences.

The good ones.

I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
