Were you looking for information about Lithium? Lithuim is a common misspelling of lithium.
Lithium (Eskalith®, Eskalith CR®, Lithobid®) is a prescription medication that is licensed to treat bipolar disorder. The medication is thought to work by affecting certain chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters. Some of the side effects include diarrhea, drowsiness, and nausea. Lithium is not suitable for everyone. Conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before taking the drug include kidney or heart disease, dehydration, low sodium levels, or any allergies.
