Lithosun 400 MG Description

Lithosun 400 mg Tablet contains lithium. Lithium is a mood stabilising medicine used in the treatment of mood disorders like bipolar disorder. It mostly takes care of the manic part of bipolar disord

er. Mania gives rise to symptoms like aggression, hyperactivity, lack of sleep, anger, bad judgement, rushed speech, feeling self-important, distractibility, illogical thinking, etc. Lithium helps reduce the frequency as well as the severity of mania, and aggressive and self-harming behaviour. Another important thing from this standpoint is that it also helps manage suicidal thoughts and the future development of bipolar disorder. It takes about 1-3 weeks for this medicine to start showing its effect. Older adults are generally given lower doses of Lithosun 400 mg Tablet. Sudden discontinuation of Lithosun 400 mg Tablet might lead to relapse ( back to the symptoms). Do not stop the medicine without consulting your doctor. They will taper the dose over 3 months.
