There are many, many people here taking lithium carbonate and benefitting. True, it is not for everyone - but neither is any other regimen I know of for CHs.
One of the problems with lithium is that docors overprescribe it. Many think dosages for people with severe manic disorders (750mg to 900mg and up) are what CH sufferers need (where 600mg all the way down to 300mg may do).
Lithium is also effective at lower levels in combination with other medications where either medication at a higher dosage would be too much because of side effects.
