Anyone have experience with Lithium?

I read good reviews about it. It’s a neuroleptic (sorta ish kinda in a way) but I’m scared of 2 things about taking it;

My TD is going to return full force.
I’m going to start taking nicotine again due to depletion of dopamine.

Other things that dont come to my mind atm

What should I do ?

(My main reason of refusing meds is because of the side effects and fear of starting up nicotine again)

Any reassurance is appreciated, thank you.

Got to watch out for lithium, as it’s toxic.
It’s hard on your kidneys and thyroid.

You have to drink plenty of water with it.

It gave me hypothyroidism.

I shook so bad I could barely write or drink from a cup. It was awful. But everyone reacts differently to different meds.

This med sounds powerful. If I can’t even handle 15 mg of abilify, I bet I can’t handle this one.

Sometimes people say I have mania but I don’t think so. It’s just depression
