Study shows Lithium should be used more widely for Bipolar

Recommended Posts

The Guardian posted an article that talks about why Lithium should be more widely prescribed for Bipolar Disorder.


Earlier this year, my pdoc added Lithium to my regimen, and I am physically doing so much better.  I am already on Clozapine and I was getting more and more depressed, and was so weak and fatigued and now that I've added Lithium I'm doing better now, although I'm still not 100%.

Would be my maintenance drug if I didn't have cruel side effects and on larger doses eventually becoming a nihilist.

Right now I'm sort of safe that it exists and it's around because until this day it brought me down quickly from any 'spark' of a manic state.

I truly wish I could adjust to it better, on the right dose was the best mood stabilizer and I would say it even kept anything remotely related to psychoses under control.
