Bipolar Medication: Lithium

Оценок: 948 | Просмотров: 130622
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.

I’m on 1500 mg a day I don’t like the high amount of it I’m on but it works I have to drink tons of water everyday but I do because I have to. It doesn’t take the depression away all the way I need an anti depressant plus I’m hearing and seeing things that aren’t real which is a reason as to why I’m on such a high dosage. Hoping to get it lowered and on other meds that won’t damage my kidneys no more than I have already. Other than that I love the drug

To EmpoweRN, May I ask you if you have ever tried to get free and informed consent from this particular patient population you've worked with about these drugs you recklessly advertise here? Don't you think that those people need to learn the cons of these drugs as well?Where is the information about the adverse effects as well as the withdrawal symptoms of these drugs in this youtube video? What about the comparisons of episode rates between the ones who're strictly committed to this drug regiments vs the ones who have never used any drugs in the patient population ? I haven't seen any figure about the success rates either. Where is the comparison of the suicide rates between the ones who use these drugs vs the ones who don't use them at all. Is there any information about different treatment options? What do you offer to those people who can no longer take these drugs due to heart problems, thyroid problems, obessity, liver and kidney failure as a result of the chronic use of these drugs? Isn't it true that these people will suffer not only because of these very serious problems but also the withdrawal symptoms of these drugs then? Isn't it true that there's no turning back once after they've irreversably wrecked their health? Isn't it true that those people will die in great emotional and physical pains in the end? Are you really a nurse? Do you have a soul? As far as I know nurses should be the advocates of their patients. Why don't u defend your patients' right to freely choose their treatment options? My advise to you is to quit to be the part of this psychiatric scam which first creates chemical dependencies in these unfortunate suffering indiduals and then makes money by managing these psychiatrically created chemical dependencies.

Let's take a look at this combination of drugs people labeled bipolar take each day in order to prevent relapses one by one: 1. Lithium, is a very well-known poison which will give you nothing but thyroid problems sooner or later at the time when your immune system weakens when you get older, and beware that this problem would be deadly in conjunction with a heart problem. 2. Valproic acid which is an antiepileptic drug in fact. The ones who have epilepsy can use this drug realatively safely as they get with much lower doses than bipolars. But don't forget that you get this drug in 5000 times higher doses than than epilepsy patients. There's no need to be a psychiatrist or pharmacologist or a physician to guess that sooner or later that would lead to liver or kidney failure in the long run. 3 One of the central nervous system drugs which would definitely lead to health issues such as heart problems and diabetes. 4. Antipsychotics which wouldl definitely lead to irreversable dysfiguring neurological problems like parkinson like disases in the long run ( if you don't already suffer) as well as metabolic disorders, type 2 diabetes and obessity which is accepted as number one cause of cancer. It's scientific fact that people episode even if they strictly take this drug regiment as much as the ones who don't take any drugs (just follow the researches on internet) at all. Moreover they can't quit these drugs because of the debilitating withdrawal symptoms of them. Now my question here is what will you do when your urologist endocrinologist, cardiologist and neurologist altogether say that you must quit these drugs otherwise it will have grave and even deadly consequences for you? What are you planing to do then? I always say this to those people who're lured into this psychiatric scam: The question here is not whether or not you're to quit these drugs. Because you'll definitely quit them sooner or later. The real question here is when you'll do it. Is it after or before irreversably wrecking your health?

My psychiatrist absolutely will not prescribe Lithium even though I asked. He’s been a Psych for 42 years, and he says almost every single patient he’s put on lithium over the years has ended up with Kidney Failure.

Lithium is classed as a mood stabiliser. We don’t call it an “anti manic”.
Marie Maurice (3 месяца назад)
Its known as both. Lamictal, depakote, tegretol etc. Are all simply referred to as mood stabilizers even though they're technically anti convulsants. Lithium is a mood stabilizer - though also classed as an Anti-Manic agent. Psychopharmacology is confusing lol...

Worst drug I've ever been prescribed. I had nasty headaches, tremors, it tore up my stomach, it gave me blurry vision and all kinds of other bad side effects. I had the personality of wallpaper. I would rather be manic or depressed than feel like I did on Lithium. Sure, it stabilized my mood...but I was a zombie when I was on it. There's better medication out there.

Has anyone been able to get by and not have kidney or thyroid issues on a low dose of Lithium - like 450 mg.? Depression from BPII has been the hardest symptom to deal with and it comes and goes, but when it comes on full force in Spring and Summer, Lithium is the only thing that helps it. I seem to be able to get by on just 450 mg. but I am not young (almost 52) and I am afraid of kidney and thyroid issues if I stay on it long term. Will continue to get things tested. Last time I quit, it was because I was getting some kind of skin irritation on my face. But it didn't take long for the BP to start showing symptoms again and then I found myself in a serious depressive episode. *** I do so much natural stuff for depression - yoga, exercise, sauna, nutrition, meditation, try to stay social, help others, engage in hobbies and work and I am still flattened by clinical depression at some times of the year more than others. Been through years of many medications that did not work or made the BP a lot worse. Lithium is the thing that seems to work and I am kind of pissed about it because it scares me to stay on it long term.

Anable Anna I’m not on any other medications I’ve tried everything under the sun and nothing worked as quick and efficiently as lithium has I suggest you have your son try this medication because it will give immediate relief and I’ve had zero side effects except a bit of weight gain In the long run it can damage your kidneys and thyroid but I think it’s worth it Living happy is worth it

I would continue taking lithium if it didn't give me terrible acne. I see my doctor in a few weeks so I hope to work out a good treatment plan. I've had this illness for 17 years and I still hate taking meds. I stop them more often now. Meds make me very overwhelmed. Lithium levels irritate me. It's too much to worry about. I've been dealing with this for too long and I'm still so young. I don't want to deal with meds for any longer.

Thank you for advocating on the side of caution. This is definitely important and something I am going to insist my doctor stays on top of - thyroid and kidney tests. It's figured that the only thing that helps me is Lithium, but my depression is so bad, that at least I am glad something helps. No other mood stabilizers have and the Lithium Orotate stuff you can buy without an Rx did nothing for me, though others claim it has helped them.

I am so sorry. That much be very difficult and frightening. I don't know if this would help you, but I sit in a sauna 2-3 times a week, which helps my depression and my anxiety. It also helps take the burden off of the kidneys by about a 1/3 from what I have read as the skin is considered a third kidney. I hope you get better or find the things that work to make this manageable for you. Best wishes!

I’ve tried Lamictal and Depakote. They partially work, but it’s just not enough. I don’t know who I am anymore. I don’t recognize the person I’ve become since using said medications. I was diagnosed at the age of 16 (I’m 18 now) and my memory has become shitty. It used to be extremely good. I have concentration problems, I use 1800mg of Depakote a day and I still have mood swings. I’m not the same person I used to be. I fucking love and hate the effects of this disease. I think I’ll ask my psychologist if I can switch to lithium. Hope it’ll work.

This is exactly what happened to my mother after 12 years of taking lithium. Plus she has long term kidney damage caused by it. Lithium crystallises the kidneys.

Well you can say 2.6% of the US population is diagnosed with bipolar but that's a rather a misleading statistic as US doctors are paid by pharmaceutical company's to give out prescriptions of their drug and the large amount of advertising and promotion of pharmaceuticals in the US.

I've tried a lot of different medicine, but the lithium is the one that cured my bipolar disorder and major depression, I was miserable, but now I can enjoy my life and feel happy, no side affects.

Tomas Antanaitis there is no such thing as “curing” bipolar!! You can treat it, not cure it 😕 I wish!!! This is absolute hell.

I use it for cluster headaches. So far it has worked for that condition, but it does have side effects. The biggest for me is that it makes me tired all the time.
