What Is The Difference Between Lithium And Lithium Er?

I was just switched from Lithium ER to regular Lithium. Having problems sleeping and concentrating. I am 40 and was diagnoised as bipolar at 19.

Answer

Hi there

Was there a reason your doctor made this switch? Here is our information on all the different forms of Lithium. Lithium ER is the extended release form. Perhaps your body is getting used to this change in the type of Lithium.

Your best bet is to call your doctor and let him or her know of these side effects and see if they will go away in time or if this is not working for you.

Thank you for your question...please let us know how things go.
