When I started lithium I had the shakes for months. The lithium works great for me now though. It is a side effect. Talk to your doc about studering.

Hi, jen! I don't know that I'd call it stuttering, but for the first month or two it was like my tongue got in the way or my mouth wasn't moving right or something. I'd start to say something and I'd go, *Hi, jenn... blibblibbla,,, ifer!*
Anyway, it went away and all's fine now.
I had some irritibility because that's the form my hypomania takes. After a couple months and a blood test to check my lithium level my doctor raised the dose and all my symptoms completely resolved.
It's a great drug for me!!
Best wishes, WCV

I have been on it and detoxing from benzos. I tremor and shake. I am an artist so this is annoying but I had a tremor before due to eepilepsy so it just seems worse
