Most Psychiatrist feel this is one of the best treatment. It has been around for years. Although you do have to have blood work to monitors your levels monthly at first than once you get to a certain level and balanced out every 6 months. Psychiatrists seem to love Lithium it wasn't for me because I for a lot of people causes a lot of weight gain. I can't be on any drug like that due to having recovered from an eating disorder obsessed with my weight. Hope I was somewhat helpful I am not very scientific but, have tried Lithium and did have weight gain right away and didn't like the lab work.
