Lithium Testing

Lithium is commonly used as a mood stabilizing drug to treat bipolar disorder.  A lithium blood test is done to measure the amount of lithium in your blood, to determine whether or not you are being prescribed the correct dosage.  It may be done when you first being taking the medication, to help adjust the dosage to the level best suited for you.


Ongoing tests may be ordered if a person's condition doesn't appear to be responding to the lithium treatment.  Tests may also be ordered when someone show signs of lithium toxicity.  Those symptoms may include:

  • Lack of energy

  • Muscle weakness

  • Slurred speech

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Lack of coordination

  • Shaking

  • Confusion

  • Tremors
