I'm on Lithium with Manerix. I had a major depression and it took the doctors 6 months to find me something that worked. I had tremors really bad at the beginning. Could not write my name and had trouble holding a beverage. It went away eventually. A year after I had hypothyroid. I needed to take Synthroid to balance my thyroid. When you are on Lithium you are supposed to get your blood checked often to make sure your levels are o.k. These drugs are a life saver for me. I have my family and life back now because of them. If it works for you, I wish you the best!
Hi A P,
When I started Lithium 6 years ago I had trembling really bad. I had to use two hands to hold my coffee. I could not sign my name at all. It took a few months for that to go away completely. A year after I became hypothyroid. But I have to tell you it took 6 months before the doctors found something that worked for me. I love Lithium. I take it with Manerix for major depression witch I no longer have or had since 6 years ago. I find them miracle drugs for me! I have my life back again and feel even better then when I didn't have the depression even.
Good luck and take care,
