Were you looking for information about Lithium? Lythium is a common misspelling of lithium.
If you have bipolar disorder, your healthcare provider may recommend lithium (Eskalith®, Eskalith CR®, Lithobid®). Although the drug cannot cure bipolar disorder, it can help to control the symptoms. It is not exactly clear how the medication works, but it is thought to work by affecting various chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters.
The medicine comes in several forms, including tablets, extended-release tablets, capsules, and syrup. The dosage that your healthcare provider prescribes will depend on how you respond to the drug, the particular product being used, and other medical conditions you may have, among other things. As with any medication, side effects are possible. Some of the more common side effects of this product include drowsiness, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and nausea.
