I just got a new med - lithium. Anyone have any experience with this med? Tell me your experiences please. How do most Buddhists feel about psychiatric meds? Should one not really need them if they just practice intensely and follow the precepts or do they allow that some people have a chemical imbalance? Haven't talked to many other Buddhists about this subject, though I do know of several therapists who do have a grounding in it (unfortunately none of them are in my state or I'd see them!).
