    Is anyone on Lithium? 2 main side effects are weight gain (which I'm terrified of) and decreased appetite (which I'm excited for). What are your experiences with it?

    I was on Lithium a few years ago. It worked quite well for me. It did make my tummy kind of sick, and it gave me awful hand tremors. Just my experience though.

    I've never taken it, but I just wanted to say that eating too little can actually lead to weight gain, so I'd be careful with the decreased appetite thing. But I hope it works out for you. Good luck. :)
