Alan, I am a long time user of Lithium - about 3 1/2 years now. All this time, I was on 900 mg/day. Recently, the doc upped the dose to 1200 mg/day, along with 320 mg/day Verapamil and 2.5 mg of Naratriptan at night. I continued to have headaches for the first couple of weeks, so the doc raised my Lithium to 1500 mg/day. Guess what? No more headaches!!! But I sleep all the damn time! Oh well, sleeping is something that all clusterheads dream of (without h/a of course) and I am definetly in heaven right now (if sleep is the criteria). Anyhow, it is possible for your body to get used to a given amount of Lithium, but it takes about 1 week for it to take effect, or any subsequent changes in dose you make. Regards, AlanO.
