The Chief Medical Officer also recommends that you have an ECG (a heart tracing) every 6 months. If you are due an ECG, this can be done at the same time as your quarterly blood test, so please mention this when booking your appointment. Your blood should be tested 12 hours after your last dose of Lithium the night before. Your results will be back in 1 week and you can phone the practice for these.
