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

R u an health professional? I beg to differ unless the classification has changed it’s still is but classified under mis. Neuroleptic it just that it’s old school and I’m kinda sure it is too.
Correct me if I’m wrong with documentation or anything

Listen, I am 50 y/o I suffer from bipolar disorder I took lithium for 10 bloody years, I have been on this site for 5 years and answered over 5700 questions, who are you? who gives you the right to question me???
You are very nosy and judgemental, I do´nt Know you, but I already do not like your ATTITUDE. Instead of questioning , you should be helping others, if not I strongly suggest you leave us alone, and leave our site.

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.
