Lithium and Headaches/Migraines

Recommended Posts

So there is a known link between depression and migraines, so I imagine BP/SZA as well.

I'm in the middle of a 10 month depressive episode, currently on partial disability (though I haven't been to work in 2 weeks).  Most recent med change to combat this is Lithium, and my blood levels are apparently fine at 900mg.

The thing is - I don't know if it's the depression, or what, but I've been getting more headaches and today - migraine.  At first I thought it was getting a cold (my husband has one) but this is a 12/10 headache (all day), light sensitivity, blah blah blah.  

Is there a connection?  Has anyone experienced this as a side effect of Li?
