My primary care believes that my headaches and migraines are being caused by the lithium after seeing her twice about it.
I Have had some problems with beginning to go into mania and stayed up for two nights straight so I called my doc. She did get back to me and put me back on seroquel, a lower dose, and I am still taking the lithium. Yes, I am sleeping but I worked hard to lose 6lbs since I've been off of it.
I am worried about the long term problems of being on a med like seroquel, diabetes, obesity, lower life expectancy, being a zombie, cognitive and memory problems.
My only other two options are latuda or saphris.
