For Bipolar Disorder: This has been a great medication for me. It brought me out of a 4-year-long depression, and I have been on it over a decade with minimal side effects.

For Bipolar Disorder: I've been on lithium for a long time for bipolar 1. Use as part of combination therapy since I can't tolerate doses over 600 mg/day (start shaking, skin numbness). Works very well for treating manic side of things, racing thoughts.

For Bipolar Disorder: I have been bipolar my whole life and nothing has worked better than Lithium. The side effects were quite minimal, feel queasy and difficulty reading because eyes jerk. All went away after approximately 2 to 3 weeks.

For Bipolar Disorder: This medication in combination with Zyprexa has really improved my life. I have been on this for 5 months and am almost over the side effects. I notice that I stutter when I have an alcoholic beverage, and tend to shake quite a bit in my hands and lower limbs. Still would recommend this to anyone.

For Bipolar Disorder: Eskalith (Lithium) is by far the most effective drug for bipolar disorder.
