I have taken essentially every drug that can be prescribed by a Dr., however last year was the first time Bi Polar was every mentioned. Enter this new drug Lithium. I'm neither for, or against it. Negatives: upsets my stomach, my skin and scalp suddenly are severely dry, I'm hungry & thirsty all of the time.

I had an eating disorder so the idea of gaining weight is more depressing than Lithium's ability to treat. I don't ever want to have sex either. I'm thinking of suggesting going back to an SSRI like Luvox. My question is can Lithium also be taken with an anti-depressant?
