Hi Jane. I just started taking Lithium Carbonate 150mg. It's been 6 days. I take the medication at night though. I've noticed the first couple of days
I felt somewhat drowsy when waking up. How many milligrams do you take in the morning? You should consider drinking 12 to 16oz of water with the medication in the morning and maybe 20 minutes or so of light exercise, maybe stretching.
Hang In There!
