Feeling rage and anger!
Been taking 300mg Lithium, then 450mg Lithium with no problem. For the 2 weeks I was on 450mg things were good. Doc wants 600mg.
Been taking 600mg of Lithium (this is the 2nd or 3rd try). Both pharmacist and doc say since it is 150mg capsules take it twice a day.
Take my evening dose of 300mg with dinner.
I had the same experience on Seroquel.
Problem is that with 300mg at night, within 3 hours or so of waking up I experience rage! This is why I stopped 600mg in the past. This rage also happened with Seroquel, I slept like a rock, but was rageful in the morning.
Do I need to switch to a different form of 600mg?
Will my body keep a steady state if I take 450mg in the morning and 150mg at night?
I didn't have rage issues when I took 150mg at night.
Or is the 600mg too much for me? I am still taking Adderall. Is it time to stop that?
I'm just wondering why both Seroquel and Lithium would cause morning rage issues?
Now that I am on 600mg of Lith, is my brain missing a feel good, calming chemical?
Seems like 600mg would make me more calm, not angrier. The daytime dose seems fine. I guess I do feel edgier. Is there more serotonin hitting my brain (that has cause problems with me in the past).
I know it has something to do with the night time dose and having a short fuse in the morning.
I even take Klonopin in the morning.
What's your take? Doc just shrugs her shoulders.
I see a new doc next week and I really need some info.
Re: Feeling rage and anger!
Wow, rage from a pill? Never heard that! All my rage is just natural! So what kinds of thoughts do you have when this is happening? Are you sure it is the medication? Haven't taken lithium in decades but for me, it caused bad acne and dehydration/frequent urination. Hmmm... the acne could have been a hormonal imbalance... that could also explain rage... Well I'm not a doctor so I can't say much about it but your post is intriguing, I'm sorry you have to go through this though.
