If I take water as well is it OK to have 2 or 3 beers or glasses of wine ?
Absolutely not. Lithium and alcohol are a recipe for major disaster.
Hi, i have to agree, although the interactions checker will tell you there is only a 'moderate' risk, it can be extremely dangerous combining the 2
It depends on the level you are on and how long you have been on it. For example. My psychiatrist told me I could have a few drinks while on lithium. I am on 600 mg for 7 years I do drink water after each drink so I don't get dehydrated.
I would not drink. I learned this the hard way. I had about 7 beers last night and my anxiety and agitation was very apparent, as well as some confusion and just general weird feeling. I also had some major GI problems all today. I take 900 mg extended release. Like others said, recipe for disaster.
