Q: TSH Levels and Lithium
My son will be 13 in August been digonaosed for about 5 years the
pdoc today just changed is meds to the following Depakote Er 500mg in am &
pm, Lithium 450mg in am, Lithobid 300mg at bedtime, WellbutrinSR 200mg in am and
afternoon, Zyprexa 5mg at bedtime.Have you heard of these combonations? Also
Dear Melissa --
Perhaps both: lithium alone can do it, commonly; but may be more likely if there's a family history. The doc' is doing the routine thing: thyroid supplementation to make up for what the lithium is interfering with, namely thyroid hormone production.
