... inability to sleep and the kidney failure meds are causing big problems like dehydration and vomiting due to high levels of lithium in my system due to interaction of drugs and kidneys is there another drug equal to lithium I can take to help me sleep and control moods
Im no expert on the subject but my mother was on lithium for about 20+ years. It caused her some permant liver damage, as well as an inlarged heart. After much trial and error her doctor finally put her on Depakote. It seems to work well for mood disorders. I was also told that Seroquel is now being used to treat bipolar.
