    Lithium for Psychosis

    quilonorm retard (A) initially made itself felt slightly nausea, then I got my skin problems reinforced again, but they disappeared after 1 month. Now after the third month no side effects and I’m fine.

    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 Bipolar disorder; Depression

    I have been taking Elontril for ten weeks and while my mood is much better and I do not feel like living under a bell any more (as with all the other depressants I’ve tried before – Cypralex, Cymbalta, Trevilor, Amitryptilin etc), unfortunately I am under very severe nausea, which I do not leave even after all these weeks. I first put it on my stomach ulcer, but now this week I have increased the dose again from 300mg to 450mg, and the nausea is suddenly much worse, a sweet taste at the moment has come to this. Can I still hope that these side effects (which can not be sustained in the long run) will go away even though I’ve had them for almost three months? I really want to avoid having to change again because otherwise the medicine will do me so much. I eat normally again (the ill sugar addiction that caused the other remedies went away overnight), and lost the 7 kilos I gained from the other remedies, the painful water retention in my legs is also gone , I am less tired, can finally work again, sleep well (the initial violent nightmares are now subsiding) etc. etc.

    Side effects: Nausea
