i am taking lithum and noticed my feet are swollen, i know salt causes water retention is t a possible cause
Hi, hy! Yes, lithium is a salt ~ not in the sense of table salt ~ but still a salt. It can cause water retention and swollen extremities. It's very important to notify your doctor ASAP as you may require a dosage change, and also to rule out any other medical causes for the swelling.
