i was taking lithium carbonate for 2 years when first diagnosed at age 47. (in 1977) it was fine for me. was warned to stop because my job took blood samples of their employees and if i were found out i would lose my job. so i stopped. in 2005 i tried using lithium again but because of my age of 68 i had to stop for shaking terribly. tried many others but the same shakes. do not remember the names of the other drugs. now i try to live without. difficult. as you age the body rejects. also perhaps because i am on eleven prescription medications for my many ailments. i find helping others reakky, really helps me especially when it is appreciated. love to all barbara

Hi peach ….. when I started taking Lamictal, I also began having what they call “essential tremors” ….. my writing looked like I was 100, and I could not do anything that required careful and fine work. So, to counteract that, my doctor put me on propanalol which is working, but …… what else is it doing long term? It feels like a game of russian roulette.
