So lately I’ve been getting worse and worse with my depression. No antidepressants have worked. I know it takes more than just medication to help but they don’t seem to be doing anything. Today I saw my psychiatrist and he told me that sometimes when multiple antidepressants haven’t worked, it could mean there’s another mental illness that hasn’t presented itself yet.
Anyways, he prescribed me lithium. He doesn’t think I’m bipolar necessarily (or at least not manic), it’s just something he thought we should try. I have to go for blood work before I can start taking it but I just wanted to know people’s thoughts on lithium.
If you’ve ever taken it/currently are or even just know some stuff about it, I’d love to hear your thoughts and knowledge!
Any feedback is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
