First of all you have to take it with food especially on a high dose. Second of all nausea and vomiting can be a sign of lithium toxicity so ask to have your lithium levels checked. See about getting a lower dose if the food doesn’t help or your levels are too high and if it continues after that than try a different mood stabilizer.
