Answered by Dr. Chintan Solanki 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
for general health it is not used

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir,
thanks for using healthcaremagic.
I would like to tell you that lithium is specifically approved for bipolar disorder only.
Its use in some condition like headache, Alzheimer dementia and some muscular problem is off label.
You mentioned that you want to prevent problems as you are aging.
I would like to know "what problems you want to prevent by lithium or what is the reason behind using lithium for general health". After that I can give you some clue regarding use and dose.
Just give me some detail, I will respond you back.
Thanks & Regards,
Dr. Chintan Solanki

I have been taking 40mgs of celexa and 100mgs of Lamictal for my bipolar disorder for over 2 years. I was also born with 2 heart defects: ventricular septal defect and mitral valve prolapse. Over the last two months, I have developed an arrhythmia that occurs several times an hour. I'm waiting for the results of my echo, stress test, etc. (done yesterday). Question: What is the likelihood that I'm experiencing side effects of my medication? I've never had any other problems in the years that I've taken Celexa or Lamictal, but I want to make sure I treat this arrhythmia soon. (btw, I'm 32 yrs old) Thanks!
