With the aid of questionnaires it was established that among the patients who had begun long-term treatment with lithium since 1974, 85% of them continued to be treated prophylactically for at least 2 years. Favourable results in such treatment were considered to be in 91% of the cases. Some of the patients at the same time continued to take antidepressive and ataractic drugs. A study of the morbidity risk for relatives of the first degree of kinship in the group of patients treated only with lithium and in the group of patients receiving combined treatment did not demonstrate significant differences.
