My 18year old daughter who has schziophrenia started taking lithium 3 weeks ago. Her pychiatrist ordered weekly blood tests. He does not review the results until 6 days after the blood was taken. I am concerned about toxicity. How quickly can the levels change? I know the test results are availble after 2 days. Is 6 days acceptable?
