My psych told me something about this at one point. SOmething with creatine and lithium being salts, that creatine holds water which can cause increased lithium. but creatine also makes u drink more which can decrease lithium or something.........

 

anyone have any ideas on this

Not drinking enough water causes lithium levels to rise. So does sweating too much on a hot day or vigorous exercise.

id imagine the inverse would be true if you are sweating or pissing a ton.

i think it was creatine can cause me to hold water and drink more cause levels to dive. but that creatine can also raise levels if ur hydration stays the same, so u have to monitor????????? crap he literally just left too lol

According to Medscape's interaction checker, there are no interactions between lithium and creatine, but that doesn't mean there isn't any possible interactions. Both sides of what you're saying though, @looking for answers, so it's really hard to say.

Are you referring to Creatine or Creatinine? Just ignore if you already know (it was fairly new to me)

Lithium has been shown to increase serum creatinine levels in a subgroup of patients. However, lithium-induced increases in serum creatinine have not been well studied with regard to timing, trajectory, or predictability. ... A serum creatinine level of 1.3 and/or 1.4 mg/100 mL predicted renal insufficiency. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/22020353/

(re: webmd) Creatine causes muscles to draw water from the rest of your body ( It might cause you to become dehydrated.)

I think this would mean you would have to stay well hydrated if you took creatine with lithium. Be sure to run it by your pdoc first.
