I've been on lithium for about 10 months now. I haven't encountered any of the usual side effects my MD told about like the shaking hands, increased urination, etc but I have started experiencing another possible side effect. For the last couple of months I have noticed a dramatic change in my behavior. At first I was happy because the usual anxiety and hyper activity that I've lived with most of my life seemed to diminish but after a while I started to become concerned that I was becoming disconnected with everything going on around me. At work and at home I seem to have developed an attitude of just not caring. I don't get excited about almost anything, I don't upset, I just don't care about most things. I feel like a zombie and most days I can't get myself to do anything other than go to the gym and go to work. Has anyone else noticed something similar on lithium?
