I was taking lithium carbonate for bipolar disorder. I was wondering how long does it take to get it out of your system? I was taking 600 mg for a month and stopped about a month ago.
Because of lithium's half life of 24hrs it would take approximately 5 days after your last dose for the drug to completely clear your system.
