  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 1500 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Found that lithobid managed my mood, but other than stable mood it was a difficult drug to be on. My lithium toxicity was caused by poor health care, in that my blood level was not sufficiently monitored. Glad to be off of this drug! Now taking lamictal for mood balancing, and other than intense dreams and nightmares, it is a good fit for me.
