How and where to order Eskalith, Lithobid (Lithium Carbonate) 150 mg, 300 mg, 400 mg tablets or capsules online:
Indications and usage:
Eskalith and Lithobid (Lithium Carbonate) as psychoactive drugs are indicated in the treatment of psychiatric, mental and mood medical conditions in patients 7 years and older such as bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia, manic episodes of manic-depressive illness, to reduce the risk of suicide. Maintenance therapy prevents or diminishes the intensity of subsequent episodes in those manic-depressive patients with a history of mania.
Typical symptoms of mania include pressure of speech, motor hyperactivity, reduced need for sleep, flight of ideas, grandiosity, elation, poor judgment, aggressiveness and possibly hostility. When given to a patient experiencing a manic episode, this medication may produce a normalization of symptomatology within 1 to 3 weeks.
Dosage and administration:
Dosage forms and strengths:
The toxic concentrations for lithium (>= 1.5 mEq/L) are close to the therapeutic concentrations. It is therefore important that patients and their families be cautioned to watch for early toxic symptoms and to discontinue the drug and inform the physician should they occur.
No specific antidote for lithium poisoning is known. Treatment is supportive. Early symptoms of lithium toxicity can usually be treated by reduction or cessation of dosage of the drug and resumption of the treatment at a lower dose after 24 to 48 hours. In severe cases of lithium poisoning, the first and foremost goal of treatment consists of elimination of this ion from the patient.
Treatment is essentially the same as that used in barbiturate poisoning: 1) gastric lavage, 2) correction of fluid and electrolyte imbalance and, 3) regulation of kidney functioning. Urea, mannitol, and aminophylline all produce significant increases in lithium excretion. Hemodialysis is an effective and rapid means of removing the ion from the severely toxic patient. However, patient recovery may be slow.
Infection prophylaxis, regular chest X-rays, and preservation of adequate respiration are essential.
Known hypersensitivity to any inactive ingredient in this medication.
Warnings and precautions:
Adverse reactions, side effects:
Common adverse reactions of medicines containing lithium carbonate:
To report suspected adverse reactions of your lithium drug, contact its manufacturer, distributor, or your local FDA.
Use in specific populations:
May cause fetal and/or neonatal harm.
Discontinue breastfeeding if a breastfed infant develops lithium toxicity.
The safety and effectiveness of lithium has not been established in pediatric patients less than 7 years of age with bipolar I disorder.
Because elderly patients are more likely to have decreased renal function, care should be taken in dose selection, and it may be useful to monitor renal function.
Use caution during dose selection, starting with dosages less than those for patients with normal renal function while carefully monitoring for side effects.
Patient counseling information:
Dosage and administration
Advise patients that lithium is a mood stabilizer, and should only be taken as directed. Emphasize the importance of compliance with the prescribed treatment and to not adjust the dose of lithium without first consulting their healthcare provider. Inform patients that they will need to have regular blood draws to determine if their dose of lithium is appropriate.
Instruct patients not to double the dose if a dose is missed, due to the complexity of individualized dosing and potential for lithium toxicity.
Inform patients on adverse reactions related to lithium toxicity that require medical attention. Advise patients to discontinue lithium treatment and contact their healthcare provider if clinical signs of lithium toxicity such as diarrhea, vomiting, tremor, lack of muscle coordination, drowsiness, abnormal heart rhythm or muscular weakness occur.
Counsel patients on the adverse reactions related to lithium-induced polyuria, when to seek medical attention, and the importance of maintaining normal diet with salt and staying hydrated.
Counsel patients on the adverse reactions of hyponatremia, when to seek medical attention, the importance of maintaining a normal diet including adequate salt intake and staying hydrated. Salt supplements and additional fluids may be required if excessive losses occur.
Caution patients about the risk of serotonin syndrome, particularly with the concomitant use of lithium with other serotonergic drugs including SSRIs, SNRIs, triptans, tricyclic antidepressants, fentanyl, tramadol, tryptophan, buspirone, St. John's Wort, and with drugs that impair metabolism of serotonin (in particular, MAOIs, both those intended to treat psychiatric disorders and also others, such as linezolid).
Advise patients that many drugs can interact with lithium and to inform their doctor and pharmacist if they are taking any over the counter medication, including herbal medication, or are started on a new prescription.
Tell patients that lithium may cause somnolence particularly when initiating treatment and to be cautious about operating vehicles or hazardous machinery, until they are reasonably certain that lithium treatment does not affect them adversely.
Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to a fetus and/or neonate.
Advise women that breastfeeding is not recommended during treatment with lithium medications.
