Are there and lingering side effects of lithium? I stopped taking it because I didn't like how I felt on it. Since then I'm really tired all the time and my hands shake really bad when I clench and unclech them. It was so bad today I could hardly put my hair up! I didn't know if these might be from the lithium or what. Also since prozac, zoloft, and zyprexa didn't really work and I didn't like the lihium, can anyone suggest some meds that I might talk to my doctor about? Something that won't have horrible side effects ( I have a 4 year old little girl so I don't want to be loopy or a zombie!) or cause bad weight gain ( I already have those issues!) Thanks and God bless!
Lingering side effects of lithium?

Sounds to me like a drug called clonopin is what you need. It is not real strong but it calms you. Alot of times doctors misdiagnose depression, bi-polar for simple everyday stress and clonopin is good for that. I was given alot of drugs like lithium and lithium too today I don't take anything but clonopin, it works
I was diagnosed with bipolar when I was 12. So far zoloft worked the best, as long as the dosage kept being upped but I didn't want to keep doing that! I just want something that will help get me out of the depression and level out the mania but not have horrible side effects! Thanks for the info. I will talk with my doctor when I go back to see her!
