Lithium Carbonate: A lithium salt, classified as a mood-stabilizing agent. Lithium ion alters the metabolism of BIOGENIC MONOAMINES in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, and affects multiple neurotransmission systems.Lithium: An element in the alkali metals family. It has the atomic symbol Li, atomic number 3, and atomic weight [6.938; 6.997]. Salts of lithium are used in treating BIPOLAR DISORDER.Carbonates: Salts or ions of the theoretical carbonic acid, containing the radical CO2(3-). Carbonates are readily decomposed by acids. The carbonates of the alkali metals are water-soluble; all others are insoluble.

Several MONOAMINE OXIDASE INHIBITORS are useful as antidepressants apparently as a long-term consequence of their modulation of catecholamine levels. The tricyclic compounds useful as antidepressive agents (ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENTS, TRICYCLIC) also appear to act through brain catecholamine systems. A third group (ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENTS, SECOND-GENERATION) is a diverse group of drugs including some that act specifically on serotonergic systems.Lithium Chloride: A salt of lithium that has been used experimentally as an immunomodulator.Evidence-Based Medicine: An approach of practicing medicine with the goal to improve and evaluate patient care.

(From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)Reproducibility of Results: The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.Internet: A loose confederation of computer communication networks around the world. The networks that make up the Internet are connected through several backbone networks. The Internet grew out of the US Government ARPAnet project and was designed to facilitate information exchange.Comparative Effectiveness Research: Conduct and synthesis of systematic research comparing interventions and strategies to prevent, diagnose, treat, and monitor health conditions. The purpose of this research is to inform patients, providers, and decision-makers, responding to their expressed needs, about which interventions are most effective for which patients under specific circumstances. (hhs.gov/recovery/programs/cer/draftdefinition.html accessed 6/12/2009)Antipsychotic Agents: Agents that control agitated psychotic behavior, alleviate acute psychotic states, reduce psychotic symptoms, and exert a quieting effect. They are used in SCHIZOPHRENIA; senile dementia; transient psychosis following surgery; or MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; etc. These drugs are often referred to as neuroleptics alluding to the tendency to produce neurological side effects, but not all antipsychotics are likely to produce such effects. Many of these drugs may also be effective against nausea, emesis, and pruritus.Valproic Acid: A fatty acid with anticonvulsant properties used in the treatment of epilepsy. The mechanisms of its therapeutic actions are not well understood. It may act by increasing GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID levels in the brain or by altering the properties of voltage dependent sodium channels.Personality Disorders: A major deviation from normal patterns of behavior.Cyclothymic Disorder: An affective disorder characterized by periods of depression and hypomania. These may be separated by periods of normal mood.Psychiatric Status Rating Scales: Standardized procedures utilizing rating scales or interview schedules carried out by health personnel for evaluating the degree of mental illness.Depressive Disorder, Major: Marked depression appearing in the involution period and characterized by hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, and agitation.Ethanol: A clear, colorless liquid rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed throughout the body.

It binds one molecule of oxygen per pair of iron atoms and functions as a respiratory protein.Encyclopedias as Topic: Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)Gadiformes: An order of fish including the families Gadidae (cods), Macrouridae (grenadiers), and hakes. The large Gadidae family includes cod, haddock, whiting, and pollock.Cistus: A plant genus of the family CISTACEAE. The common name of rock rose is also sometimes used with the closely related Helianthemum genus (CISTACEAE).Metalloproteins: Proteins that have one or more tightly bound metal ions forming part of their structure. (Dorland, 28th ed)Oxygen: An element with atomic symbol O, atomic number 8, and atomic weight [15.99903; 15.99977].

  • The typical size of a dose of lithium drug ranges from 900 to 1800 mg Li 2 CO 3 /day (if administered in 2 divided doses a day) and 900 to 2400 mg Li 2 CO 3 /day (if administered in 3-4 divided doses a day) [ 3 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • High doses can cause lithium poisoning and side effects such as the inability to control movement, blackouts, seizures, hallucinations, severe headaches, and acute renal failure [ 3 , 5 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • A growing number of psychotropic drugs are used to treat bipolar disorder, often off-label and in untested, complex combinations. (nih.gov)
  • It is primarily used to treat bipolar disorder and treat major depressive disorder that does not improve following the use of antidepressants. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another approach to delineating the pathophysiology of bipolar disorder involves studying changes in gene expression induced in rodent brains after administration of pharmacologic agents used to treat bipolar disorder. (medscape.com)
  • For example, investigators have demonstrated that 2 chemically unrelated drugs (lithium and valproate) used to treat bipolar disorder both upregulate the expression of the cytoprotective protein Bcl-2 in the frontal cortex and the hippocampus of rat brains. (medscape.com)
  • Researchers from the University of South Florida (USF) have reportedly discovered that an alternative salt form of lithium might be a safer, less toxic way to treat bipolar disorder and other neuropsychiatric conditions. (redorbit.com)
  • Credit for viability and proof of this salt - Li 2 CO 3 - belongs to the Australian scientist John Cade who experimented with lithium after observations he made as a POW at the Japanese Changi Prison . (everything2.com)
  • He was advised by his department head Lawrence Kolb to investigate reports coming out of Denmark and Australia about lithium (starting with John Cade). (wikipedia.org)
  • John Cade introdujo el uso de carbonato de litio para el tratamiento de man a en 1949, iniciando con ello la era de la moderna psicofarmacolog a cl nica. (bireme.br)
  • Patients with BPI disorder who reported high lifetime panic-agoraphobic spectrum symptom scores took 27 weeks longer than those who reported low scores to remit with acute treatment (44 vs 17 weeks, respectively). (nih.gov)

  • Lithium is an element of the alkali-metal group. (healthyplace.com)
  • Lithium is an element of the alkali-metal group with atomic number 3, atomic weight 6.94, and an emission line at 671 nm on the flame photometer. (drugs.com)
  • The objective of this study was to assess the bioequivalence of two Roxane lithium carbonate 450 mg extended release tablet formulations compared to GlaxoSmithKline's Eskalith CR 450 mg extended release tablet under fasting conditions using a single-dose, randomized, three-treatment, three-period, six-sequence crossover design. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • That said, Lithium is extremely toxic as metioned above and MUST be used in conjunction with a psychiarist 's supervision and very frequent blood test s. (everything2.com)
  • Publishing a paper in a recent edition of RSC Advances , the journal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the study authors discuss how oral lithium salicylate was able to produce steady lithium levels for up to 48 hours in rats - without the toxic side effects typically linked with the rapid absorption of current FDA-approved lithium carbonate .
