I need lithium to survive. My husband and I have been wanting to have a baby and because of the danger to the baby I tried two things. First I tried tapering off of lithium under the care of my doctor but became depressed and suicidal after a few months of being completely off. Then I tried going on lamictal because it is safe for pregnancy which was a total disaster and started me having cognitive depression which I had never had before. During both times I also became hypomanic. So recently we were thinking maybe it would be worth staying on lithium and taking our chances regarding the health of the baby. We have lots of articles which we got earlier before we started the whole thing which we need to reread, but I was hoping there might be someone out there who has conceived and carried a baby to term while on lithium and could tell me how it went.
