Add on to above, I have had no kidney or thyroid problems even after 45 years of Lithium.
Also no kidney or thyroid problems after 45 years.
Hi I’ve taken lithium for 45 years and it is truly a mood stabilizer. When taking it, I have no depression and no mania. The times I haven’t taken it , I have had depression or mania. Lithium has given me a normal life!
Have taken lithium for 44 years. I agree with your article!
In 1972,I was diagnosed in Rochester Minnesota with Bipolar I. I was given Lithium. I was 20 years old. Today I am 64 years old and still take lithium. I’ve had a good life due to the mood stabilizing effects of Lithium .Most people have no idea I have Bipolar, unless I tell them. I have been married to the same man for 42 years and raised 3 children . I am sorry for those who were not doing well on Lithium! It’s a natural remedy, found on the scientific chart of basic elements, near hydrogen and helium. Most of psychiatric meds are a recipe of complicated chemicals concocted in a laboratory. If you had a choice, which one would you want in your body? I made my choice .
