lithium 300

Lithium 300 milligrams is it safe to try it to see if it stabilizes my mood? I tend to be hyperactive and have a hard time relaxing. ## Hello, Chimi! How are you? Has your doctor prescribed it? This is a very potent medication, so it shouldn't be something you just take experimentally. Are you on any other medications? Because that's also a very important factor which must be considered. Do you have any diagnosed medical conditions? ## My best friend was taking it for over 6 years, he was making weird movements and yelling out weird noises was scary, plus it kills your liver, he's off of it now on pail and Ambien, he tried serequil at night to sleep but said it was making him feel paranoid and terrified at night same thing happened to me when I took it, it does make you slee...

Amoxi-clav, Wellbutrin, Lithium and Seroquel

I've been taking Amoxi-Clav 875mg 2 times a day along with 450 mg of Wellbutrin, 300 mg of Lithium and 600 mg of Seroquel.

Though the FDA also warns that taking them together might make these side effects more severe. How are you doing on them? Have you had any serious issues?

Serequil

round 200mg ## I have a friend who has been disgnosed as bipolar. Problems with lithium and was given serequil today to take one before bedtime. Does anyone have any comments about this drug? He is having hard enough time with meds and dreads side effects. Thanks. ## The active ingredient in Seroquel is Quetiapine, an atypical antipsychotic. Unfortunately, all medications have the potential to cause side effects, especially mental health meds to treat psychoses. This is probably one of the reasons his doctor is having him take it at night, this will help minimize the amount of side effects he feels, since, until his body adjusts to the medication, he will sleep through most of them. Some of the most common side effects for this medication include: drowsiness, headache, dry mouth and con...

Lithium - a narcotic?

I would like to know if lithium is a narcotic? I'm having Mohs surgery on thursday and I have A LOT of anxiety & fear building up!

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, and diarrhea. However, it can sometimes interfere with surgical anesthesia, so it would be best not to take it, without checking with your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?
