By affecting certain chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters, lithium (Eskalith®, Eskalith CR®, Lithobid®) can help to control the symptoms of bipolar disorder.

Common side effects include drowsiness, nausea, and diarrhea. Lithium is typically taken two to four times a day and is available as a tablet, extended-release tablet, capsule, and as syrup.
