I have been taking lithium for six days and have had bad headaches and do not know if they are related. I have chronic migraines and I take Imitrex injections and I am hoping there is not a correlation. I have been on so many mood stabilizers they’re starting from the beginning again with 300 mg of lithium every day in addition to my Effexor

But people have very different reactions to medications so I would let your doctor(s) know and get professional advice.
