    Lithium is extremely toxic. You need frequent blood tests to ensure it doesn't kill you or mess up your kidneys permanently. Personally I wouldn't play around with self dosing.

    Lithium carbonate is available as a generic now, even the XR form if you wanted it.

    Do not try to self medicate. Go to a doctor and take what he prescribes.
