I'm gradually coming off Lithium, having been on it few years, and I'm looking for experiences/warnings about what to expect.

My psychiatrist is fine with this, and I'm being monitored by them, I'm just wondering if there are any things that they might not warn me about. I had a nasty experience trying to come off SSRIs a while back and I'm keen not to have have the same again with Lithium.
I'm happy to hear anyone's experiences (happy for this to be a coming-off-lithium general discussion), but my particular circumstance is that I'm on lithium for depression rather than bipolar, and will be staying on an SSRI. Anything particular to that is extra useful. Thanks!
