Penny Century Posted December 28, 2007 Share Posted December 28, 2007 Lithium in mood disorders: increasing evidence base, declining use? Use of lithium for the treatment of bipolar disorder may be declining even as knowledge of the efficacy and side-effects of lithium has increased. Recent meta-analyses confirm the benefits of maintenance lithium treatment and show that it reduces suicide and suicidality. Psychiatrists should continue to utilise this efficacious treatment for bipolar disorder. How many of us on here are on lithium? How many have ever tried it? I know I was offered every AAP and anticonvulsant out there before lithium. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
