Uses
Lithium Carbonate (Lithium Carbonate) is a type of inorganic compound that has been widely used for bipolar disorder, as it can function as a mood stabiliser and help to reduce mania in patients affected by this condition. It is thought to work by affecting sodium transport in the muscles and nerves and by preventing the action of PKC (protein kinace C) in the patient's brain.

As sodium is believed to be involved in mania, this may help to correct the chemical imbalance that causes mania, aggression, hostile behaviour, elation, hyperactivity and other symptoms of bipolar disorder. Other conditions for which patients have used this medicine include major depression, cluster headaches, arthritis, schizophrenia, alcoholism and other conditions which have not been listed here.

Dosage and Administration
Lithium Carbonate (Lithium Carbonate) capsules contain 250mg of the active ingredient. Swallow the capsule whole alongside a glass of water. Patients may be given special dietary instructions during treatment, such as consuming food with a normal sodium content. If the amount of sodium you consume is changed, this may affect the levels of lithium in your blood. Your doctor will need to carefully determine the correct dosage, as excess amounts of lithium could lead to serious side effects. Adults are sometimes told to take the medicine 3 to 4 times per day, however, it is essential to adhere to all dosage instructions provided by your doctor.
