I was at the naturopath again yesterday for my moods (grouchiness), and even though I don't have bi-polar, he gave me 20mg lithium to "elevate my mood".
Of course I asked about breastfeeding but he said "it's such a small dose, I'm not concerned".
He told me that people with bi-polar take 200 to 400 mg, and he's only giving me 20 mg.
I've read the threads in here but haven't found anything about this low low dose. Otherwise it seems that lithium, especially for someone who isn't even bipolar, is not recommended.
I have put a hold on Hale's Mothers Milk and Medications at the library but it'll be a few days until it's available. Powells doesn't even have any copies available that I can go look at.
Any advice would be so appreciated.
