I started taking Lithium about 5 months ago and was always within (if not below) therapeutic range. I'm a 16 year old teen that weighs 206 lbs (I'm 6 ft 1 inch). I was on 1500 mg of Lithium and I ALWAYS (everyday) felt like I had to achieve orgasm before I went to bed and also during the day at least once. Everybody told me it was normal + it was just hormones and to just masturbate but I knew I shouldn't have to because I never did before.
I couldn't find anything online to do with this, everything I read about was the counter (Lithium decreasing Libido) so I decided to investigate myself. I lowered my dose from 1500 mg to 1050 mg (stopped taking a 450 mg pill) and all of a sudden I didn't have to anymore. Some days I don't masturbate at all ever since I lowered it. The feelings that came with it were feeling shaky and numb in my face that didn't go away until I achieved orgasm.
I'm also taking Geodon, Lexapro, and Adderall. I know it's none of those though because I left all of those meds the same when I lowered the Lithium dosage.
Has anyone else had these problems or feelings? Like i said i don't believe it's common because I can't find anything to do about it on the internet, I'm just curious.
Thank you!
