I felt so good on Lithium--never felt like that before. It was wonderful, but doc was testing my levels often as I first started on it & my kidneys seemed to be reacting badly to even a low dosage. Doc told me to drink a lot more water (which I did, but I was very happy--had been horribly depressed, almost catatonic, before going on Lithium--but I was very happy in the bathroom as I had to pee all the time due to trying to drink so much water).
So doc sent me in for an ultrasound to make sure something else wasn't going on--like a tumor on my kidney. Nope--just Lithium didn't agree w/my kidneys & had to get off it w/in 3 mos.
Even though I got off Lithium w/in 3 mos., I still developed kidney damage--not severe, but it does show up on tests.
Ever tried? Ever failed? No matter. Try again. Fail again.
