Hi shell1578, I have some experience with this medication, and can tell you that it generally takes about 5 days for Lithium to build up to a steady level in your blood. Your doctor should be testing your blood after the first 5 days in order to check if the level is correct. If it isn't, the dose can be adjusted and checked again in another 5 days. I'm sure if you ask, your doctor will give you all the information you need. I hope everything works out well for you, keemo7
