I was wondering if anyone else has had any luck taking lithium. I have bipolar disorder and the last time I took lithium it was because I was in a manic phase and running away with rock bands!! Now I'm severely depressed after having had a few years of being stable, even without any meds (I should never have stopped). My doctor has me on risperdal (for my racing mind) and lithium again, but I am severely depressed, not exactly manic. Does lithium work to pull people out of a depression? It's been a couple of months and still struggling. He is very cautious and only increasing it slowly. I'm not on 900 mg, starting today. Thanks for any feedback! Mary
