Product Description:

General information
Eskalith is used to treat manic-depressive disorder (bipolar disorder). It works to stabilize the mood and reduce extremes in behavior by restoring the balance of certain natural substances (neurotransmitters) in the brain. Eskalith is not a cure for bipolar disorder. It only helps to control symptoms.
Directions
Take Eskalith exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Take this medication by mouth, usually 3-4 times daily. Take lithium with or immediately after meals to lessen stomach upset. Drink 8 to 12 glasses of water or other fluid each day, and maintain a healthy diet with normal amounts of salt (sodium). Take it at the same times each day. The recommended starting dose is 600 mg three times daily.
Precautions
Before taking Eskalith you should talk with your doctor if you have heart disease, kidney disease, underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), skin disorder (psoriasis), Parkinson's disease, leukemia, if you are dehydrated or have low levels of sodium in your blood (hyponatremia), if you are allergic to lithium. Drinking too much liquid can be as unsafe as not drinking enough. This drug may make you dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive or perform tasks that require alertness. Limit alcoholic beverages. Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of this medication.

You should not use Eskalith if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is not recommended in children under 12 years of age.
