Coming Off Meds to TTC


My husband and I are getting ready to start TTC. I have Borderline Personality Disorder, and was stable without medication for 10 years. But last year my partner took a job that has him on the road 5 days a week, and being alone all the time triggered a relapse. I was put on Lithium Orotate to help deal until I got used to the new arrangement. Well, now we want to start TTC, so I’m coming off them (very slowly), and things are mostly going well. But the Lithium took the edge off the extreme mood fluctuations, and now they’re back with a vengeance. I keep reminding myself that I’ve dealt with this before, that I just have to remember how to manage it, but it’s hard after a year of not riding this roller coaster. Anyone else with similar experiences? How did you deal with coming off meds, and the resurgence of old symptoms?
