Just wondering if anyone here has ever tried lithium and if it helped with suicidal thoughts. Did the benifits outweight the negative side effects. Could you think clearly? Did it affect your performance in work or school? I've read that it has the best results in preventing suicide and right now I am so close to the edge. I stopped taking abilify because of negative effects, and I talk to my doctor today. Ordinarily I would not stop a drug without his recommendation and knowlege that I was doing so but my appointment has been reschedule twice and it's been fourteen weeks since I saw him last, and I couldn't wait until I saw him, and I didn't want to risk being hospitalized event though thats probably what I need right now. I am considering asking him for lithium. What are the downsides?
