I am interested in finding out how long you have been on lithium for?

This would be my 8th year or so maybe 9. I developed hypothyroidism and take levothyroxine for it.

I just got off lithium a few days ago due to excessive thirst excessive urination and hand tremor which didn't bother me. Do I still have to take the thyroid med?

I took it for a few months. Hand tremors and stomach sickness lead me to go off of it. I find Depakote much easier on the tummy.

That's funny, because before there was an extended release Depakote, I had to take much less than when I was on ER, or I threw up constantly. As it was I threw up about once a week. Just goes to show, YMMV is true.
