Been taking Lithium since June. Overall, it has been going well. Couple of weeks ago I had a dose increase. I began getting side effects including, muscle weakness, slight hand tremor, fatigue, and nausea. I did mention this to my psychiatrist. Drug was reduced.
Also, through my treatment my doctor has only ordered one blood test, unless I ask for one. I thought this was strange but, assume she knows how to monitor the drug. Do you all know if lithium blood tests are suppose to be done at certain intervals? I assume I should just call my doctor but, I am the type of person that never wants to believe anything is wrong, nor do I like to bother people. I guess I don’t have a problem bothering everyone here! 😜 Thanks for reading!
