    the only problem I have with lithium is the weight gain the inpending heart arithmia and the edema that it seems nothing helps but your in a state of mind that everyone loves so what do you do. you continue to take it and your body suffers but your mind is great. so what is the answer I don't think I know anymore. all the newer drugs I can't take.
