Hello Princess121. Side effects should be the same as on the 450mg, except more pronounced. (fatique, concentration) If you are taking any medications for blood pressure issues or for a kidney disorder, I then would notify/contact for medical opinion.(Lithium plays a major role on the kidney(s) function) Regards pledge

Hi Princess,

Just call the pharmacist he may tell you to skip your next dose.

Shouldn't be too much of a problem just make sure you drink lots of water, that's how you get it out of your system. Good luck
