Thanks. I am usually pretty lucky. However, when I was on risperdal, that was my one bad side effect from it...my skin broke out really bad, particularly on my neck. I don't care if that is a listed side effect or not but I know that is what caused it. As soon as I stopped the risperdal it went away. Oddly enough, my pdoc at the time never suggested something like your lotion. Its good to keep in mind.View Thread
Is it possible for weight loss to cause your lithium levels to rise? I think that is what happened to me. My level was at .7 for as long as I can remember. In the past year, I have lost weight and now my level is up to .9. I want to cut down my lithium and get back to around the .7 level but my dr says I am doing fine at .9 and to leave the dose alone. I go back in 2 weeks and will bring it up again.
I also drink a lot of water. Other than a little coffee, that is all I drink. I would guess I drink at least a gallon a day. Would that have any effect on my lithium? I don't feel that it does, just curious. Thanks.View Thread
Control and doesn't work for me (I am probably doing it wrong). I am on aol and it asks if I want to add this to my favorites when I do that. Is there a way to change the font color? I can barely see it and its driving me crazy. Thanks. View Thread
