So I a while ago was on 1200ER and was maintaining at about .55-.58. Then we dropped to 900 ER and I still maintained mostly around 0.55.

When I was in the hospital the other day, they drew blood, my level was 0.31. 

I know various things can alter your lithium level. 

  • time of day of blood draw (mine are usual in the AM 12 hours after last dose)
  • dehydration
  • stress
  • bowel issues
  • electrolyte imbalances
  • pain killers

Thing is the stress, bowel, electrolyte, pain killers usually raise lithium levels.......

I have been drinking about 30oz more per day, but i dropped 0.27mol. 

I see Pdoc on thursday, but just curios wtf is up
