6un6silent6 Posted December 14, 2010 Share Posted December 14, 2010 I've posted here several times, but wanted to get some insight from the board. I've been on 900-1050mg of Lithium with a blood serum of .5-.7 with minimal side effects. About 4 days ago my Pdoc put me up to 1200mg since I was becoming irritable often and feeling a bit hypomanic. I'm also on 100mg of Lamictal which I'm sure is not helping (yet). I'm having a lot of problems concentrating, reading, and I feel literally like a moron @ 1200mg. My hands are trembling more than they did at 1050mg and I just feel like anxious in general. I'm waiting to hear back from my Pdoc to see what he says, but can anyone offer advice or suggestions? I'd be surprised if I'm toxic from a 150mg increase when my serum levels are always low, but as a precaution I'm keeping my salt stable and increasing my water as much as I can tolerate. But he suggested I wait till next Monday to pull blood to give the Lithium time to build. I just feel like I should draw blood today or tomorrow to see where I'm at. Obviously, I'm super-scared of becoming toxic on this stuff. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
