how long does it take to notice the lithium. i just started on 450 mg the other day, and i dont expect to feel anything instantly..but is it like 2 weeks or more before i notice anything at all? what does it make you feel like, i mean when its working well. i'm just sort of hoping it takes away the irritability. is there a chance it will get me motivated? the parnate i'm on helps the depression, but i'm still pretty lazy feeling. or will lithium just keep me from getting too crazy and depressed?
