while I was on Lithium.
Seriously, while on lithium for about 10 weeks, I had minor side effects. I drank more water than usual, as directed by my neuro. I had some fine tremors of the hands, but nothing major. I am also on other meds for epilepsy, which cause minor tremors, so it could have been the combination. I did avoid caffeine during those 10 weeks, as the literature states to do so and I thought it may make the tremors worse. I also had loose bowels, too, but I blame that on the water I was drinking. After I went off of the Lithium I was fine. That was my experience.
