A psychotropic medicine used in the treatment of bipolar affective disorders (BPAD or in lay terms just "bipolar").
Despite being the oldest established drug treatment of bipolar disorders, it remains the most effective. It is effective in all four domains of treating BPAD: Mania treatment, mania relapse prevention, depression treatment and depression relapse prevention.
Side effects include weight gain, acne and diminished thyroid function.
Lithium is extremely toxic in overdose.
No other medication worked, so the doctor prescribed me Lithium. It worked great.
