Malhi, Gin S., Tanious, Michelle, Bargh, Danielle, Das, Pritha and Berk, Michael 2013, Safe and effective use of lithium, Australian prescriber, vol. 36, no. 1, pp. 18-21, doi: 10.18773/austprescr.2013.008.
Lithium has proven efficacy in the treatment of bipolar disorder, both for acute mania and long-term mood stabilisation and prophylaxis. It is also useful in combating treatment-resistant depression. Compared to other mood stabilisers, lithium has a favourable efficacy-tolerability balance. Lithium is underused due to active marketing of alternatives and concerns regarding adverse effects, tolerability, and the perception that regular monitoring is difficult.
