I just started 450 xr twice a day and I am having a rough time. I am on it for bipolar manic episodes
Hi, Kiekie! I'm sorry you're having a rough time! Try taking your doses after a meal, or if you start feeling queasy try a little milk or yogurt and a couple plain saltine crackers.
Lithium is generic so you may get tablets or capsules or whatever. If your doctor keeps you on lithium ask your pharmacist to order enteric coated tablets. They're much easier on the tum.
Thing is, if you can get through this rough beginning ~ lithium is a brilliant drug IMHO! WCV
