Getting off Lithium while I can.

Postby Tim_the_Enchanter » Thu Dec 17, 2020 10:07 pm

New year, new meds. Today I have a good talk with my pdoc and I am trying DIVALPROEX SOD DR 500 MG TAB TABLET, DELAYED RELEASE (DR/EC) instead of Lithium. Please keep your fingers crossed so I can tolerate this well, as Lithium will kill my kidney. As I age it is way more dangerous than Depakote.
pdoc said I can taper off 2-3 weeks.
