    Comment:
    Lithium works great for the mania. Been on lithium for 30+ yrs. DRY MOUTH CAUSES MANY CAVITIES. I am losing my teeth now. Drink constantly so I have to urinate frequently. Have dry thinning hair. Have been overweight for 30+ years but I'm not sure if that is due to the respirdal I also take.

    Really seems to stem anxiety which leads to my depression, from the feelings of helplessness caused by anxiety.

    Lithium destroyed my life. Lithium ruined my vitality, my sexuality, my creativity, and my ability to succeed I the world. Lithium robbed me of my life. I hate lithium more than anything.

    Comment:
    Li helps but Seroquel turned out to be the drug that stopped the mania. This article is misleading as it states "do not take Lithium with antidepressants". Most bipolar patients require antidepressants with Lithium for effective treatment and this information is not accurate, even the FDA approves antidepressants with Li.
