Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for the question. Medicines are prescribed to you because you require them. Licab 350 MG Tablet is a mood stabilizing agent that is used in the treatment of mania and bipolar disorder. This medicine may increase the risk of adverse effects, therefore, do not take more than prescribed amount. Monitoring of kidney, heart and thyroid function is necessary. You can talk to your psychiatrist for more information. Take care.

After this change, I feel unusual feeling, heaviness in nerves and muscles below my lips, that is my chin.

You must estimate serum Lithium level. Blood sample to be taken in morning hours in empty stomach. Only getting the report we can give further course of action. Meanwhile take plenty of water and avoid other contraindicated medication during lithium therapy.

There is no drop. Infact your kidney functions are better in july 2020 compared to last year. Some variation can occur due to the metabolism of the drug in the body. But as long as it is within normal range, you have nothing to worry. Just keep checking serum lithium levels every 6 months. You are doing good and maintaining well on lithium. Continue same.

Hello, Yes they do interact. Amlodipine can increase lithium levels. Go for regular serum lithium levels to keep a eye on it. Learn about the earliest symptoms which occurs in lithium toxicity. You can consult for any further help.

Dear lybrate-user, for long term mood stability, sometimes you may need many different tablet combinations. Try and report to your doctor after few weeks. In psychiatry, there is no need of conducting 'tests' in your terms. The best test the psychiatrist conducts, is called as 'mental status examination' diagnosis in psychiatry is mostly the symptom clusters and mental status examination.
