Lithium

A couple weeks ago I started taking Lithium. It makes me so drozy and upsets my stomach. I was wondering if any of you knew how long it would take for the side effects to wear off?

I don't know if the side effects go away eventually or not. Be very careful with lithium, dose amounts vary from pharmaceutical to natural path but synthetic lithium can be dangerous both short term & long term.

If you're having side effects, the dosage may be wrong, or your system may not tolerate it well at all. Talk to the doctor--(s)he needs to know this.

I have never taken it but my doctor always says it takes a month for your body to get used to a new drug. I hope you start feeling better soon! :)

It usually takes my body a month or so for side effects to wear off.

Check with the depression support group. They will know. Good Luck

According to what I just read online it says that could be a lithium toxicity. Call your Dr tomorrow, good luck.
