TOPIC: Medication

Medication 2 months 1 week ago #227492

HI All, I have to fill in esa50 very soon. I have just started Lithium 6wks ago & was wondering has anybody been successful with esa on this medication. I am now transferred from primary mental health to secondary mental health. Was wondering would it help with special circumstances box?. I am already in the support group. How I hate form filling. Thanks.

ESA is not about your conditions and medication, at least not directly, it looks at the limitations that result in relation to a set of activities. Changing your medication may mean that you can deal with activities more easily but it also might have no effect.

See our ESA Claim guides for details of the criteria that you will be assessed against.
