As far as I know lithium levels have to be monitored very carefully, because the therapeutic dose is quite close to a poisonous dose. It's safe as long as it is checked regularly. How long have you been taking lithium? Maybe the checks have to be more frequent at the beginning. Sorry, I don't know much about it, but one doctor was thinking of putting me on it and he explained a bit about it. Ask the doctor or your cpn about as, I think, belle suggested.

Hope tomorrow goes well. Thinking of you!

Is there any way you could ring them up and just double check what they're testing you for? xxxx

Oh. That's strange. Try again maybe? Be an annoying pest until they tell you :lol: Hope you're okay otherwise though? xxxx

Did you manage to find out why or what else they were testing for? How were your levels? What dose you on?
