... pink color capsule generic of lithium is better tolerated by me.. Other people have this problem ?
I take Lithium Carbonate. I usually. Get the generic from Wal-Mart, but last time went to Target. I did not do well on the generic from Target, apparently it is different from the generic from Wal-Mart. Once I went back to Wal-Mart, I was better in a couple of days. The pharmacist tried to blow it off, but my dr said the generics may have had different active ingredients and that is what I had problems with. Not sure, but I will stick with Wal-Mart. I have responded well to Lithium and also take Prozac. The biggest complaint I have is hand tremors. Not severe, just mild shakes for a couple of seconds a couple of times during the day. Try another pharmacy and see if it is the pharmacy's generic or the lithium itself. Good luck!
