tapering down is a good idea. An even better idea is to ensure that you are drinking lots, and lots of liquids. Aside from the nightmare of headaches, you can risk the withdrawal from lithium and stress induced mental problems. When you stop taking the lithium, your body is going to think it is short on salt and you will dehydrate. Avoid this for your own safety and that of your family.
