Has anyone ever taken Lithium w/ PTC? I was on it prior to my PTC diagnosis then 8 yrs ago when I found out I had PTC the Dr took me off it. The Dr's don't know what caused my PTC though. After 4 yrs. of Diamox and Lasix I ended up w/ a VP shunt and have had 3 revisions in 4 yrs. the most recent a few mths ago. After many yrs and unsuccessful med changes my PSY Dr. has decided to try Lithium again for my Bipolar and called my NS. My NS's nurse practitioner said it was ok to take the Lithium but I'm scared and not sure what to do. On the other hand I want to take it and feel better. Anyone else taking it?
