Aspects of the use of lithium for the non-psychiatrist

Australian and New Zealand Journal of Medicine
W O Williams, A Z Györy


Lithium carbonate is commonly used in psychiatry, particularly in the management of the manic-depressive syndrome. It is also being increasingly tried in a variety of physical disorders. This essentially practical article summarizes important non-psychiatric aspects of the use of the drug, including its less common actions. Contra-indications to the use of lithium are discussed, and the management of lithium intoxication is outlined.
