My girlfriend has bipolar disorder and is schizo effective and is prescribed 150ml of lithium a day. We both don't like how she acts and thinks when she's​ on it for long periods of time. But when she stops it completely she literally goes insane. My question is: Is there a way that I can administer the medication so she can take some time off it but not go crazy? Like: 1 week on, 1 week off. Take it 3 or 4 days a week... Her doctor will never agree to this and WE ARE going to experiment with it. So don't try to talk me out of it. Just give me suggestions bc I'm not a doctor
