Hi My name is Kay. I had been taking Lithium

Hi My name is Kay. I had been taking Lithium for about 3 months and noticed my skin breaking out on my face. I've, subsequently quit taking it about 4 weeks ago and am feeling out of sorts....irritable, restless, but unmotivated.
Could you tell me how long lithium stays in your system and is there another alternative?

I ve been on lithium(300mg X 6/day) for a year and I also take Lexapro with it. I recently stopped taking the Lexapro because it was not working. In the past I have taken Wellbutrin with my lithium. I also used to do drugs I have been off for at least 5 years I don t know if maybe that factors in to why I am having trouble finding a medication that works. I don t have insurance and my primary physician is the one prescribing my medications and I wonder if the fact that he doesn t specialize in this field has something to do with it. If you could please recommend a drug that would work better with my lithium I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you again.
