Patient Concerns about Lithon Products

Frequently asked questions about Lithon Products

Frequently asked questions about Lithium carbonate

Q. How quickly does Lithon work?
It takes some time before you see improvement in your symptoms after taking Lithon. Though it varies from person to person, it may take 1-3 weeks or longer for you to see the full benefits of Lithon. Do not stop taking Lithon if you feel you are not improving. Instead, discuss it with your doctor.
Q. Does Lithon make you sleepy?
Yes, Lithon 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 Lithon bad for kidneys?
Yes, Lithon may cause kidney problems. Lithon 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 Lithon, your doctor will get blood tests done to see if your kidney function is normal. During Lithon 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 Lithon cause gain in weight?
Lithon can cause both weight gain or weight loss. You should keep a check on your weight during Lithon 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 Lithon or some other reason.
Q. What is the most important information I should know about Lithon?
Lithon therapy should only be started if adequate facilities for assessing Lithon levels are available. This is because Lithon toxicity is related to increased levels of Lithon in blood. Lithon toxicity can even occur at dose which is effective for treatment. Therefore, your doctor may closely monitor your Lithon levels weekly until stabilization is achieved, then weekly for one month and then at monthly intervals thereafter.
Q. How should Lithon be taken?
Take Lithon 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 Lithon levels.
Q. Which medicines decrease Lithon levels?
You should inform your doctor about the medicines you are taking before starting Lithon since many medicines interfere with the working of Lithon. Some medicines decrease the levels of Lithon 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.
