Bipolar Medication:  Lithium
I hope you enjoyed the video! Here is a link to test your knowledge: http://empowern.com/2015/08/bipolar-medication-lithium/ Lithium belongs to the drug class: antimanic agents and it is sold under the US brand names: Lithobid, Eskalith, Eskalith-CR. More than 5.7 million American adults or 2.6 percent of the population age 18 or older in any given year have bipolar disorder. Lithium is helping some of this American. It has become one of the first and widely used psychiatric drugs for the treatment of bipolar disorder in the United States, since its approval in the 1970s. It also has become one of the most studied psychiatric medications. Indication: Lithium is an effective drug for bipolar disorder as its properties help to prevent, as well as stabilize, manic-depressive mood swings that occur in this psychiatric condition. By controlling mood disorder, it also reduces the risk of suicide. This is an advantage of lithium that is lacking in some other drugs. But it is more effective in preventing depression than it is in preventing mania. However, it needs time to develop and reach its ideal therapeutic level in the body before it induces any effects. Usually it takes about 1-3 weeks, however, in the case of sudden or acute bipolar episodes, if lithium hasn’t reached its optimum level in the client’s body, it can be prescribed along with other medications for effectiveness. Lithium can also be prescribed for other psychiatric disorders besides bipolar disorder. It can be useful when other drugs fail in conditions such as schizophrenia, major depression, and certain psychiatric problems in children. Mechanism of Action: Although lithium had been used for more than 50 years in the treatment of bipolar disorder, its mechanism of action was unknown; until 1998. Scientists didn’t know the cause of mood swings in bipolar disorder either. A study made in 1998, by a group of researchers from Wisconsin University shed light on how lithium works and why it is effective. It was concluded that lithium acts on certain nerve cells in the brain and the receptors of the neurotransmitter glutamate. Lithium has a dual effect on these receptors, and using this, it helps to regulate the level of glutamate between cells, preventing it from reaching too high or too low concentrations. According to the director of this research, Dr. Lowell Hokin, who is also a school professor of pharmacology at Wisconsin University; too little glutamate between neurons cause depression, while excessive amounts of glutamate cause mania. But it is also believed that there are more causes and factors involved in these disorders besides the level of glutamate, but nevertheless, the study has been very helpful as it has uncovered the fundamental causes of bipolar disorder.

Lithium Toxicity at 600mg -- Muscle Spasms and Ataxia
I was officially diagnosed with Bipolar 2 in 2013.In this video I had been increased from a dosage of 450mg of lithium (eskalith) ER to two doses of 300mg in the morning and at night (600mg per day). UPDATE 11/12/14 At the time of this video I weighed 93lbs at 5'2. I gained 9 pounds on Lithium. After being taken off Lithium I have dropped back down to 84lbs, my original weight. I have been told by my psychiatrist that this level of muscle spasm and ataxia will take least 6 months to subside before I may see any improvement. My personal opinion (not confirmed by my psychiatrist) is that I stayed far too long on this medication without responding to the warning signs such as diarrhea with

Overdose on lithium
Please be careful. I'm no alarmist about drugs, but lithium can easily become poisonous to the body. It's not hard for your body to have a real negative reaction. Especially if you dose up too fast. It can dehydrate you to the point of delirum, too, so drink a lot of water at least. And I know they say it about all mood drugs, so i don't wanna sound annoying, but you TRULY don't wanna drink alcohol with this one. I've seen two people go to the ER who had been on lots of other meds, but they drank on lithium & it was different. One person got severely disoriented and dehydrated enough to end up in hospital two days. The other ended up with some kidney disease or short term failure because he took one extra pill (250mg each totalling 500mg, I think?) and drank that night, and going to gym in morn. The stuff is released faster when you drink and exercise, and the combo can catch up faster than you'd expect. The time release helps keep that from happening, but it also keeps it actively releasing evenly throughout your body day and night. Sorry to be the annoying "be safe" person, but I can't help it. I care. :) I do hope it helps you out. It didn't help me, but I've heard it can be very effective if you're careful. Be well!

Lithium NCLEX Question: Lithium levels
This video is about Lithium Question Number 1 QUESTION #1 A client receiving lithium therapy for the treatment of his bipolar disorder has a lithium level of 0.85 mEq/L. The appropriate nursing action is: A. Notify the physician immediately B. Observe the client for signs of toxicity C. Record the laboratory result in the client’s chart D. Hold the next dose of lithium  It is the nurse’s responsibility to review pertinent lab values before administering Lithium, especially, if the lithium dose is fairly new for the patient.  The nurse should know where to look up the lithium normal and critical lab values levels. This information might be found in a drug reference book, or on an online drug reference site. The nurse should become very adept at looking up drug information for all of the medications administered.  The normal levels are usually found on the patient’s lab report and often the critical levels are also noted here. The Answer to this question is C, because the patient’s laboratory result of lithium is within the therapeutic range of 0.6 – 1.5 mEq/L.

Low Dose Lithium for the Treatment of Mood, Behavioral, and Cognitive Disorders by Dr  Greenblatt
Dr. Greenblatt Lithium has been widely prescribed and researched as a mood stabilizing drug, yet it continues to be one of the most slandered and misunderstood therapies in medicine. Cast under the darkness and mystery of psychopharmacology, what many have ignored is that lithium is not solely a synthetic chemical or pharmaceutical concoction; it is a mineral that is essential to human health. Present in trace amounts in the foods we eat and the water we drink, lithium is a critical nutrient for many aspects of human physiology. This presentation will explore the exciting and promising new research implication of how low-dose nutritional lithium may improve human health, prevent cognitive decline, dementia, and suicide, and aid in the treatment of ADHD.
Lithium NCLEX Question: Lithium and Salt
This video is about Lithium Question 2 QUESTION #2 A nurse was giving health teaching to a client newly prescribed with lithium medication. Which of the following client statements indicates understanding about the medication? A. “When my mood fluctuates, I can increase the dosage of the medication” B. “I can still eat my favorite salty food” C. “I can crush an extended-release tablet, if ever it will be difficult for me to take it whole by mouth” D. “Drinking too much cranberry juice will help maintain a desirable lithium level”  Clients under lithium therapy don’t need to limit their sodium intake, instead it is recommended to keep salt intake the same as before prescription of the lithium medication.  Increasing the dose of lithium without evaluating the client’s lab works can cause lithium toxicity, overdose, and renal failure.  Extended-release tablet should be taken whole, it is uniquely made to release the medication slowly in the body, breaking the pill would cause the drug to be release at one time.  Watermelon, cantaloupe, grapefruit juice, and cranberry juice will not therapeutically help in maintaining desirable lithium level because of its diuretic effect.

Lithium Orotate
In this video you'll discover the nootropic benefits of Lithium Orotate. Including why we use Lithium Orotate as a nootropic, recommended dosage, side effects and clinical research. Lithium is a soft, silvery-white alkali metal that is so reactive, it sparks when it touches water. Cosmologists believe that lithium was one of the 3 elements synthesized in the Big Bang. So it's been around for a long time. In our modern society, this trace element retains a grim and undeserved reputation. Because it has been associated with treating serious mental issues like bipolar disorder and mania. But this psychotic medication that isn't even a true 'drug' is actually an essential trace mineral required to maintain optimal cognitive function. As a nootropic, micro-dosing with Lithium Orotate comes with a host of benefits. Lithium calms mania and mood swings by decreasing the sensitivity of norepinephrine receptors. It upregulates brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), nerve growth factor (NGF), neurotrophin-3 (NT3) and their receptors. And lithium stimulates the proliferation of stem cells in the brain. All boosting neurogenesis and assisting in repair from all types of brain injury. Lithium also increases brain gray matter, increases DNA replication for neurogenesis, prevents apoptosis, increases N-acetyl-aspartate (NAA), inhibits beta-amyloid secretion and protects against damage once it’s formed, chelates aluminum, and protects against glutamate toxicity. Lithium Orotate recommended dose is 5 mg two or three times per day. This indepth Lithium Orotate review covers: 00:25 Lithium Orotate as a nootropic 03:58 How does Lithium Orotate work in the brain? 07:20 Lithium Orotate benefits 09:44 How does Lithium Orotate feel? 12:16 Lithium Orotate clinical studies 13:16 Lithium Orotate recommended dosage 15:36 Lithium Orotate side effects 13:29 Type of Lithium Orotate to buy For more on Lithium Orotate including a full transcript of this video and links to clinical studies, go to: http://nootropicsexpert.com/lithium-orotate/ For a full list of all the popular nootropics used today, go to: http://nootropicsexpert.com/nootropics-list/ I upload new videos every week providing individual nootropic reviews, and tips on the best nootropic stacks no matter what your brain optimization goals.
