Hope the Lithium works for you! I was on it a few years ago (with a Prozac augment) and did ok but gained an outrageous
amount of weight.
With my Doctor's permission I went off the meds and I'm doing good now med free.
Anyway, because I'm med free for depression/etc all I had to list was that I was previously on medication and they never asked for any past history (the doctor I went to basically said it was pretty normal for a young woman to be on antidepressants anyway).
They didn't even seem to bat an eye about my Crohn's disease either...
Congrats on getting your visa!!
I say honesty is the best policy when it comes to stuff like this because if they find out that you purposefully left something out you'll be worse off.
