it is possible but not recommended.. lithium gets into your bloodstream quickly and its difficult to level out afterwards.. i reccomend you call your doctor and drink plenty of fluids to hydrate yourself..if u start to feel sick please dial 911

Hey jude,

Please temporarily stop the medicine and contact your doctor immediately. You can cause seious harm to your vital organs by taking too much lithium. The signs of lithium intoxication include: diarrhea, vomiting, drowsiness, muscular weakness and lack of coordination. Do not ignore this, you need to talk to your doctor immediately or call 911 for assistance.

Best wishes,
