Brief Answer:
Oxytol should have been good

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

Oxytol is a good drug and relatively safe mood stabilizer. If you were doing good on it then there should have been no reason to change it. Lithium is also a good drug but has certain side effects and exacerbation of psoriasis is one such.
I would advice that you should go back to the oxytol 600mg gradually with the information of your treating psychiattist.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.

Brief Answer:
Prescription is not possible

Detailed Answer:
Hello
we would like to inform you that health care magic is an online forum and we are not supposed to prescribe you medcines without physically examining you. These rules are meant for the safety of the consumer. So sincere apologies from our side about the inability to provide you with a prescription.
However you may meet a local psychiatrist and get a prescription for 7 days until you plan to go to a premier institute like NIMHANS. Both Manipal and Nimhans are far from each other and you cannot take treatment from both. Choose one and stick to the treatment of that doctor.
Kind regards
Dr. Srikanth Reddy MD
