    Hello, I'm 34 & I take lithium for my bipolar and I've been on it for 6 months now. I take 300 mg 3 times a day which has really helped me. My main complaint has been acne, the pain behind my eyes and howhow almost everything taste nasty. Otherwise I've had pretty good success so far with my treatment.

    I felt lithium changed my sexuality. I used to be confident and now I hide in the corner. I also feel attracted more to the same sex which is someone I never experienced before taking lithium. Has anyone felt lithium changed their sexuality? Please describe your experience on here.

    I took lithium from 1981 to 1997. It destroyed my kidneys. Now I'm on kidney dialysis and I need a transplant.
