    Lithium for Depression

    I’ve been taking lithium for 3 days, as I’ve got a lot of depression and venlafaxine is not enough, but so far it’s the antidepressant, which has helped me the best so far. I have a strong nausea since the first evening. It starts about 1/2 to 1 hour after ingestion, but gets better during the day. Have a huge u. constant thirst and during the day I feel a little dizzy and I am also very tired u. tired. The Venlafaxin I take for 1 year and I’m fine so except a dry mouth, I did not notice.

    Side effects: Dizziness; Nausea; Thirst; Fatigue

    Lithium for Depression

    Be 1.5 years severe depressive episode with panic attacks and generalized anxiety disorder. Panic Attacks: Venlaflaxin very good effect. Lyrica only minor effect. Other drugs have no effect. Generalized anxiety disorder: Lyrica very good effect, venlaflaxin moderate to good effect. Lamotrigine moderate effect. Depression: Therapy resistance to antidepressants of the SSRI and SSRNI class (venlaflaxin, sertraline, citalopram). Therapy to lithium. Wellbutrin low to moderate effect. Lamotrigine very good effect. Nicotine addiction (unplanned treatment): Wellbutrin very good effect. Side effects Venlaflaxin in the first four weeks: anxiety, dizziness, severe agitation, loss of libido, headache, sleep disorders. Venlaflaxin after the first four weeks: complete loss of libido. Lyrica: weight gain, initially tiredness. Wellbutrin: Sleep disorders, headache (both only at the beginning). Dry mouth. Lithium: Severe tremor, acne, weight gain, dry mouth, thirst. Lamotrigine: no side effects. After more than a year of drug treatment and unsuccessful treatments, I was prescribed the drug lamotrigine. This works very well, without side effects. Since I also have ADHD, it has modified my depression. The result was, as with many ADHD and depression patients, an extensive therapy license. According to my specialist in ADHD and mood disorders (depression, anxiety), the drugs Wellbutrin and Lamotrigine are in most cases very effective while classic antidepressants fail. After more than 1.5 years of immeasurable torment and suffering, I am finally on the road to recovery. Even if one does not believe it, it passes. PS: Was briefly treated with Seroquel (fatigue, appetite increase, weight gain) and Ritalin (agitation)

    Lithium for Bipolar disorder

    Due to poor values of the kidney, in this case predominantly the value of uric acid, after years of treatment with lithium and the antidepressant citalopram, the combination of seroquel and lamotrigine was changed over. This is intended to prevent further deterioration of kidney values. When slimming Lithcium and simultaneously building up the new preparations, there were strong side effects: Immediately one hour after ingestion it comes to disturbances of movement during walking (staggering), uncontrolled pronunciation and sentence formation and Flash features. It is absolutely not advisable to drive. As long-term side effects, there is a strong overhang of the medication in the next day, when the Saroquel was taken too late in the evening (22:30). Drowsiness, tiredness, listlessness, dizziness, and a feeling of being beside yourself, came on the following day until the late afternoon. If the time window is moved forward to an hour, these side effects are much better the following day. However, an improvement in the concentration (mostly long-term memory), drive and all the little things that one loses in the depression becomes positive. The opportunity to return to the work process and its social environment increases significantly. What remains is the question of side effects on the body organs in the long-term test.

    Side effects: Dizziness; Fatigue
