lithium did a number on my kidneys... I had to stop it before the damage became permanent.

Thanks, Larissa!

Lithium can cause a range of thyroid problems from full-blown hypothyroidism to subclinical hypothyroidism and, sometimes, hyperthyroidism. This is why lithium-users should get their thyroid hormone levels checked on a regular basis.

I had a bit of a thyroid problem with lithium, but it went away. I'm not sure if it was the lithium or not, but that's the only thyroid issue

Is anyone here knowledgeable about the connection between hypothyroid and bipolar symptoms? Has your doctor addressed this? How were you diagnosed and treated? Was there any resistance or pushback from your doctor regarding this subject?
