i have recently been started on lithium after several other meds causing bad side effects. I have been on 400mgs for a week which will probably be reviewed when I have my bloods done next week. However, with the other meds I have had I have felt effects straight away eg Quetiapine made me feel drowsy, but with the lithium I have felt no difference at all. Does it take a while to improve things? I heard somewhere it takes a while to build up in your system before it takes effect but I am struggling. I am currently very depressed and have terrible anxiety/ wired feeling with almost constant crying and broken sleep. I just want relief. I am diagnosed bipolar 2 with rapid cycling and also take lamotrigine 150mgs. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks
