Were you looking for information about Lithium? Lithiam is a common misspelling of lithium.
By affecting various chemicals in the brain, lithium (Eskalith®, Eskalith CR®, Lithobid®) may help treat the symptoms of bipolar disorder. In most cases, people tolerate this prescription medication well. However, side effects can occur and may include nausea, drowsiness, and diarrhea. Lithium is not suitable for everyone. Make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you have, as well as any other medications (including vitamins and supplements) you are taking before starting treatment with lithium.
