I have been prescribed lithium for treatment resistant depression. I just got to 0.55 (within 0.4-1.0 therapeutic serum range) about 3 weeks ago. I have had 2 separate weeks of feeling good since starting it 6 weeks ago... but have felt crap in between. I am also on duloxetine and olanzapine.
I was just wondering what others felt like when they started on lithium and how long it took to feel better?
Or what other people are on for TRD?

Lithium is a heavy hitting medication, usually but not always used for Bi polar disorder. It’s hard on your liver and your blood must be checked every month. If your doctor didn’t tell you this please get another doctor.
