This publication offers a transparent and accomplished advisor to the scientific prescription of lithium that pulls upon evidence-based wisdom of its mechanisms of motion. The publication is split into elements, at the technological know-how of lithium and the perform of lithium treatment. the previous covers features resembling the homes of the lithium ion, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, effect on neurotransmission, and gene expression modulation. The part on perform comprises dialogue of variability in accordance with lithium, use of lithium within the therapy of bipolar issues, its worth in suicide prevention, management while pregnant and within the pediatric age team, and unintended effects. Lithium is arguably the single precise temper stabilizer, and its multifaceted results throughout many medical domain names have given upward thrust to a resurgence of curiosity lately, fuelled by way of either researchers and clinicians. however, its use continues to be limited by means of exaggerated issues approximately strength side-effects. in fact, lithium is a straightforward molecule that's fairly elementary to manage and display screen and has almost certainly profound merits at a fragment of the price of modern brokers. This e-book dispels the various myths and matters that encompass its use and may be of curiosity for clinicians and researchers world wide, and people who are recipients of lithium therapy.
