I am episodic, 2x a year usually spring and fall, 8 to 12 week cycles. I'm 6'0" 180lb 40 year old white male...(phew there's all the vitals!!!!). When my cycle fires off I go on 1200 mg a day lithium, 300 mg 4 times a day. It takes about 7 to 10 days to kick in so I think like me and jonny you may have found nirvanna with lithium. I rant and rave about lithium cuz it gave me back my normal life. My wife and two teen age daughters consider it a miracle too because now I rarely get more then a dozen ALL YEAR!! I hope it works as well for you. For what it's worth I use oxygen and cafergot for the ones that do break through. Hoping all the best for you.
