    this medication is good for the most part, but there are some side effects. When taking the lithium i sweat a lot more i shake. So when I am doing speeches for school my hands shake even if I am not nervous. I am comfortable speaking in front of people but the tremor is noticeable to others. My hands also become cold easily. But being a hormonal teenager could also be affecting it. It can sometime ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    There seems to be a lack of distinction in this review between lithium OROTATE (available w/o a prescription), and Lithium CARBONATE (prescription only). I was diagnosed with Bipolar I when I was 16, (upon having my 1st manic episode requiring in-patient hosp.) I took lithium carbonate for more than 30 years. I then (slowly) transitioned to lithium orotate, due to concerns of side effects with th ... Show Full Comment

    People, READ! It's Lithium Orotate NOT Carbonate which has to be prescribed by a doctor. This is a natural harmless mineral and the two are no way connected.

    I was misdiagnosed with Bipolar Disorder when I was 6 years old and this vile substance was forced down my throat for 11 years. The end results during my formative years, and current health/future health were disastrous. Iv seen it erode away at the minds of family members who took it as well, and who sadly refuse to do without.

    Comment:
    I was diagnosed with bipolar I at 15 and schizophrenia at 22. I was prescribed lithium first in the mental institution with risperdal(awful) and my normal xanax. After leaving I have continued and upped my dosage to 900mg following topamax, Xanax and concerts. So far it has proven its worth and makes sense why it's the 'go to' med for so many years. It has drastically helped my mood sw ... Show Full Comment
