Hello everyone. I hope all is well with you all. I would like some advice on these medications please. My daughter is in the partial program now working on changing medications. She is on Lithium and Lamictal. The plan is to titrate up on the Lamictal and discontinue the Lithium. She has never been on Lamictal before, however did take Lithium for about 6 months 3 years ago. Back then the Lithium didn't seem to do anything for her. Now she seems to be doing okay, she is pretty calm and controlled, her mood seems to be pretty stable and we haven't had any rages. I am afraid to change anything, if it aint broke don't fix it, right? I am just afraid of the monthly blood tests and long term liver damage that comes along with Lithium. We are patiently waiting for the Lamictal to reach the right levels, so I am not sure which medication is working. Does anyone have experience with both medications? Is is really that dangerous to stay on Lithium long term? Does the Lamictal work similarly to Lithium? I am going to be talking to the doctor today regarding her medications and I am not sure which way to go. Please help. I should tell you that she is also on Haldol, Geodon and Cogentin. Thanks.
