Behind you...BOO!!!
Maybe you should visit your Dr. Stopping meds (or sicking them up) could be v bad for you. Hope you feel better soon.

Oh no,.. you must be feeling terrible. Being unwell and then the sudden withdrawal from the medication must be making you feel awful.

Wishing you well very soon. :flowers:

Toona, I also think you should see your GP **ASAP if you are on lithium**

hi all

i managed to take my lithium last nite and have had my meds today.

i feel bizzare. managing to eat, but feel really sick all the time, and feel like im on drugs (illegal type). i ve been into work today which was so tiring.

looking fwd to doing nothing once i get kids sorted and to bed.

once the meds get backi in my system i should feel more normal.

have to go and get lithium checked tom.

thanks for your replies.

i think you should get an iv drip to get meds when sick, you would if it was physical illness.

that's the reason i said i said asap if you are on lithium. as you probably know, vomiting can affect your levels.

are you managing to take any clear fluids or were you throwing eveything up? you might have had a touch of winter vomiting disease - i had it at the beginning of the year, but my levels stayed ok. if you can manage now, keep drinking water

if you're feeling weird like you're on drugs though that might be something to do with your lithium level though - good job you are going to have your bloods done tomorrow :hug:
