  • My daughter is on lithium, loxapine and celexa she has developed full body tics and her blood pressure and heart rate sky rocketed tonight. Any ideas? Also I know she took her pills today and her Lithium tested 0 !Thats alot of medication to be taking and in my opinion quite dangerous too.Is there any alternative you could find?

  • Also I know she took her pills today and her Lithium tested 0 ! I wont comment on why your daughter is taking so many, rather hardcore psychiatric medications, because you didn't give any other background information, I do however know that you cant test 0 for a medication that you actually took. So either she isn't taking the lithium or what she took isn't lithium. Lithium can cause tics (well actually twitches) as a side effect.
