Have you experienced any side effects from lithium?
Hi @java_mom, this is Ethan one of the moderators on Connect. Here is some more information Lithium and potential side effects: https://medlineplus.gov/druginfo/meds/a681039.html
I am tagging @cathy615 and @sallyharper as they have taken lithium and may be able to share what side effects, if any, they've experienced.
As for you @java_mom, you mentioned you took your first dose last night, did you experience any initial side effects?

I felt ok after taking it, just felt very tired and got a headache. This morning I'm feeling alright; still tired but none of the fogginess or difficulty speaking and walking like I did with risperidone. I'm hoping this medication works and I can tolerate it. The anti-psychotics drugs and I usually don't get along.
