I know all of you will highly not recomend this but i am not in a position to pay for checkups and lab tests and therapists visits. I was diagnoses with bipoler II disorder earlier in life and was recommended lithium meds. However unable to take them any more without routine checkups i was wondering if self monitoring my lithium, creatine, and blood levels was possible... And if so wat should i specifically be aware of to look for. I only have minimum medical knowledge as a nurse and i wish too know the possibility of me self monitoring myself.
