Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to lithium carbonate (CAS RN 554-13-2), lithium citrate (CAS RN 6080-58-6), and lithium citrate anhydrous (CAS RN 919-16-4). Lithium is a simple alkali metal, the salt of which acts as a mood stabilizing agent which has been extensively used for the treatment of mania for more than 50 years. Lithium carbonate is the carbonate salt of lithium, a soft alkali metal, with antimanic and hematopoietic activities. Lithium interferes with transmembrane sodium exchange in nerve cells by affecting sodium, potassium-stimulated adenosine triphosphatase (Na+, K+-ATPase). It alters the release of neurotransmitters, affects cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) concentrations and blocks inositol metabolism resulting in depletion of cellular inositol and inhibition of phospholipase C-mediated signal transduction. Lithium citrate is the citrate salt of lithium, a monovalent cation with antimanic activity. Lithium, in its salt forms, is used as a mood stabilizer and for the treatment of depression and mania. It is most frequently prescribed in the treatment of bipolar disorder.
