Low lithium level: Normal lithium level is 0.8-1.2 meq/litre. Camcolit(lithium ) and setraline combination is usually given in bipolar illness. All medications have side effects.. Your symptoms could be side effects of medications In addition the disease itself will have symptoms such as forgetfulness. Consult your psychitrist for titrating up the lithium dose.
