Does anyone know what the side effects are from stopping Lithium treatment for depression--not bipolar-- ?
I experienced severe nausea while on the drug even after about 4 weeks of treatment. Eventually, I couldn't handle the sick feeling anymore, so I stopped it cold turkey. Now, for the past week, while I have been feeling less nauseaus, I am very dizzy and have a constant feeling of "motion sickness."
Has anyone ever experienced this and can anyone tell me how you handled this? I guess I'm wondering if this feeling will go away, as it has already been a week off the drug and I thought it didn't stay in your system that long. Not sure if I should stick it out or call a doctor....
Can anyone offer some insight?
Thank you kindly,
