Anyone find that Lithium helps / hinders sleep?
Right now I'm partly afraid of tapering it , while I detest the side effects,I fear it is helping me sleep.do these effects tend to last with Li?
(Or perhaps it is the Mirtazipine I am taking also. )
With regard to Lithium, I'm hoping as I move down the taper, I hope, I will see less side effects.
Would love to hear some of your experiences with Lithium. How close to bedtime do you take it? I take it 1hr from bedtime.

I'm OK thank you. Just feel quite spaced and flat from Lithium. Well, at least I think it is Lithium. Won't get another taper for quite a while so I'm afraid I'm gonna have to deal with it
