When I first started taking lithium for two months I had no ha. Great! Then I noticed one then two ha come back. Now I am back to 6 ha a day just like before I started the lithium and it is only been 4 or 5 months. I was reading in the archives on medicines and to quote on lithium "During successful lithium therapy, about 60 percent of patients experience bursts of short cluster periods that are generally mild and of short duration."

Have you experienced interuptions in your lithium therapy? How long was the interuption? Was it full blown with several ha a day like mine?

I am curious if I should stay steady with lithium, convince my doc to up the dose, or throw it out. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated and welcome.
