Lithosun (Lithium Carbonate) is a psychiatric drug which is used in the treatment of depression. It is also indicated for the prevention of mania in those affected by bipolar disorder, as it acts as a mood stabilizer. This medicine helps to decrease abnormal activity in the brain, which makes it effective at treating psychiatric disorders.

Dosage and Administration
Lithosun (Lithium Carbonate) comes as tablets, which contain 300mg of the active ingredient. Doctors who are treating patients for bipolar disorder and certain other psychiatric disorders often prescribe a dosage ranging from 900mg to 1.2g per day, given as 2 to 4 divided doses. If treating bipolar disorder, abruptly stopping treatment can cause a sudden return of symptoms. The doctor will most likely tell the patient to gradually decrease the dosage over a period of 14 days. Other conditions may be treated with different amounts of medicine. Ask your doctor for more details.

Side effects
Lithosun (Lithium Carbonate) may cause:

  • Loss of hair
  • Taste changes
  • Appetite reduction
  • Worsening of acne or skin disorders
  • Hand tremors which are mild in nature

If any side effects occur, talk to your doctor. Serious side effects are less common. However, if you notice frequent urination, seizures, extreme thirst, discoloured toes or fingers, hallucinations or any other side effects, see your doctor immediately.

Precautions
Your doctor will ensure that the levels of lithium in your body are not too high, as this could be dangerous. Blood tests may be required in order to ensure this.

Treatment with this medication may make you dehydrate quicker, especially if you are exposed to hot weather.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Lithosun (Lithium Carbonate) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
