Hi, j! No, lithium is a mood stabilizer. The neuroleptics are the antipsychotic medications such as Abilify, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Saphris, and such.

To carry on, it isn't in the class of antipsychotics that are considered neuroleptics. Neuroleptic is an old term and is seldom used anymore to refer to meds.
