I have been taking Lithium for about 4 years. I do great with it as far as my brain goes. I have always been prone to acne. However, my skin was clear for about 3 years, until I started the Lithium... I am looking for anyone who experiences this and what they do about it.

I had horrible acne while on lithium. There is nothing that can help other than coming off of it. My doctor tried all kinds of treatments but it made it worse. I finally saw a dermatologist who told me if acne is medication induced the only cure is coming off of it. It took a month for it to clear once I came off of the lithium.
