I used to be underweight before starting all my psych meds and I'm overweight now. I'm planning to request my psych to stop/taper my lithium. I want to know whether this is likely to cause rebound mania or depression.

Well, I take Lithium twice a day, and I don't gain weight. It's some other psych meds that you take that cause you to gain weight. You need to continue to take Lithium. Without it, it will rebound depression/mania. It happened to me early this month when I reduced the dose. I felt unnecessarily angry...
