Why would my 14yr old son have lithium? Is this the new drug of choice among youth?

Hello,

Lithium has been around for many decades.
Lithium is a mood stabilizer for people who suffer from Bipolar Disorder.

There are many more, like lamictal ,depakene, etc.

Take care.-

Even though one poster said they never heard of anyone taking Lithium to get high, does not mean that they don't and that it doesn't.

Youths today take so many different kinds of drugs to get high. The biggest abuse is of prescription drugs, because they seem to be so readily available, from home medicine cabinets to the street.

I don't know if your son was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, but if he wasn't, he is somehow using it as a mind altering drug.
