I am having very bad side effects of taking Lithium for bipolar disorder type I.
I am having very bad nause and vomiting on 1200 mg of Lithium. I also am having eczema (very dry skin with blisters), swelling of hands and feet so bad that I almost couldn't get my wedding ring off(and it's usually loose), I have very strong unpleasant body odor so that I'm taking two showers everyday because I cannot stand how I smell, dry mouth with metallic taste that doesn't go away. What else can I take, that won't give me these side effects? I just think that my body doesn't tolerate this drug.
