I just looked up Diamox and it says medications such as lithium interfere. My boyfriend is on lithium for bipolar and I know it has been used for depression. According to the medical information your Diamox works by breaking down specific proteins and in doing this can break down the lithium naturally occuring in you blood which possibly could be the initial cause of your depression. I do not know if this is the case, but get your levels checked and if all else fails set up another appointment. Good luck :)
