I have been taking 300mg lithium carbonate tablets (one capsule twice a day) for a year now and it's worked like magic on my bipolar. However, my doctor recently switched me to capsules instead of tablets (don't know why- i just received the prescription change with no explanation) and today I got so frustrated over a homework problem that I started crying, which isn't something I've experienced since before I was put on lithium. In general I am feeling extremely frustrated and irritable, which were always red flags that I was entering a manic state, and the only change in my meds is the switch to capsules. Has anyone else experienced this?? Am I just not responding to my current dosage? Please help.
