Featured: lithium, Lithobid Main Article

Lithium (Lithobid) is used for the treatment of manic/depressive (bipolar) and depressive disorders. Lithium interferes with the synthesis and reuptake of chemical messengers by which nerves communicate with each other (neurotransmitters). It also affects the concentrations of tryptophan and serotonin in the brain, as well as increases the production of white blood cells in the bone marrow. It is important to be aware of the drug interactions related to lithium, pregnancy safety information, and common side effects on the user.
