Frequently asked questions about Litholent Products

Frequently asked questions about Lithium carbonate

Q. How quickly does Litholent work?
It takes some time before you see improvement in your symptoms after taking Litholent. Though it varies from person to person, it may take 1-3 weeks or longer for you to see the full benefits of Litholent. Do not stop taking Litholent if you feel you are not improving. Instead, discuss it with your doctor.
Q. Does Litholent make you sleepy?
Yes, Litholent can cause nervous system disorders like sleepiness and dizziness and feeling confused. It can also cause rapid eye movements, blurred vision, or blind spots in your eyesight. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult your doctor. In addition, avoid driving or operating heavy machinery as it can be hazardous for you.
Q. Is Litholent bad for kidneys?
Yes, Litholent may cause kidney problems. Litholent is not prescribed in patients who already have severe kidney impairment. The kidney problems may not be reversible and the symptoms include swollen ankles, passing a lot of urine and feeling thirsty. Before starting treatment with Litholent, your doctor will get blood tests done to see if your kidney function is normal. During Litholent therapy, any gradual or sudden changes in renal function, even within the normal range, may indicate the need for re-evaluation of treatment.
Q. Can Litholent cause gain in weight?
Litholent can cause both weight gain or weight loss. You should keep a check on your weight during Litholent therapy. If you feel you are gaining or losing too much weight, consult your doctor who will assess whether the change in weight is due to Litholent or some other reason.
Q. What is the most important information I should know about Litholent?
Litholent therapy should only be started if adequate facilities for assessing Litholent levels are available. This is because Litholent toxicity is related to increased levels of Litholent in blood. Litholent toxicity can even occur at dose which is effective for treatment. Therefore, your doctor may closely monitor your Litholent levels weekly until stabilization is achieved, then weekly for one month and then at monthly intervals thereafter.
Q. How should Litholent be taken?
Take Litholent exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Check with your doctor if you are not sure. It is meant for oral administration and can be taken with or without food. However, if you start following a certain type of diet, talk to your doctor first. Any drastic changes in the amount of water you drink or amount of sodium (salt) in your diet may require more frequent monitoring of Litholent levels.
Q. Which medicines decrease Litholent levels?
You should inform your doctor about the medicines you are taking before starting Litholent since many medicines interfere with the working of Litholent. Some medicines decrease the levels of Litholent in blood which means that it will not work well. These include theophylline (for asthma), caffeine, anything containing sodium bicarbonate, or a special group of diuretics (water tablets) called carbonic anhydrase inhibitors and urea used to treat skin conditions.
