Lithium resistance and side effects

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

New here and have a couple of questions about lithium.

Has anyone here developed resistance to lithium? It has been a wonder drug for me these past 2 years, but very recently my old mood instability has crept back - this time it's depressive with mixed symptoms - really unpleasant. Blood levels remain the same at .7/8  I take 900mg.

Other question: with the return of symptoms, there's also been an increase in EPS-like side-effects, especially worm-jaw as I call it, muscle rippling and tightness along the jawline: haven't experienced since I tried AAPs (EPS disasters!)

I have an appt with PDoc, who's not the greatest for listening, so would really appreciate and feedback.
