This list of undesirable effects of lithium should be taken into consideration but should not exclude its use because, when properly prescribed, its beneficial effects far outweigh its possible undesirable side effects..

Drugs that can be used instead of lithium in the treatment of manic-depressive psychosis and related disorders are called normothymic: they are tegretol, carbamazepine, valproic acid (sodium divalproate,, DEPAMIDE *) and may be lamotrigine. According to available studies, carbamazepine and valproic acid have effects almost equivalent to those of lithium, which remains the reference product. They could perhaps be associated in rebellious cases: either lithium plus carbamazepine or lithium plus valproic acid, with possible reduction of the dosage of each of them.

During the course of the treatment, the measurement of the lithemia, frequent at the beginning of treatment, during the adaptation of the posology, can then be much more spaced, a control by month or every two or three months for example. But it is necessary to control the lithemia in case of suspicion of intoxication or inefficacy of the treatment, or during the concomitant prescription of drugs which can modify its elimination..

Tremor of hands that can become very troublesome frequently observed. It tends to reduce its importance by changing the distribution of lithium administration, that is to say by giving a higher dose in the evening than in the morning. Β-blockers can decrease it. Muscle weakness Increase in po> 3 instead of 7 to 8,000 normally. This leukocytosis is reversible when the treatment is stopped. Neurological disorders that are mainly observed during overdoses and intoxications: ataxia, mental confusion, delirium, hallucinations, nystagmus, convulsions. Symptoms of intoxication include muscle contractions, difficulty in writing, difficulty walking, apathy, and dysarthria. Teratogenic risk: It is advisable to stop the lithium before pregnancy and not to prescribe during it because, experimentally, it has been teratogenic. However, most women who have taken lithium during pregnancy have given birth to normal children and further lithium therapy can be considered with fetal echocardiographic control. It is advisable to stop lithium at least one week before the start of electroshock treatment. Studies comparing intellectual abilities during and after lithium withdrawal in patients with manic-depressive psychosis indicate that lithium may reduce their creativity and memory. This fear may explain the abandonment of lithium by some patients despite its therapeutic efficacy. When lithium is effective in a patient, its more or less prolonged stop may create a refractory state leading to a decrease in its effectiveness when it is resumed later. This observation remains to be verified.
