Hello! I read several articles about lithium and its effects on Covid-19. Some studies suggest that lithium can prevent you from serious form of Covid-19 or even from being infected. I have been on lithium treatment for many years. I am living with my partner who was diagnosed with Covid-19 and has infected his family and some friends. Although we live together he didn't infect me which was proven by both – antigen and PCR test. Do you have similair experiences with lithium? Thank you for your replies.
Edit: I am not vaccinated.

That's interesting! I wonder what part of Lithium might have any protection against either contracting or getting seriously sick from covid.

I've also heard that Prozac can do the same thing. Fluvoxetine or whatever it is. I don't understand it, but it's interesting!

Hi there. Please see my earlier posts.
I have Covid and am on Li.
I am unsure about this, very unsure. Li xan cause problems with dehydration.
That's one of my fears.
But I have seen the research. Its very speculative.
If you have a healthy immune system, you will be fine. Regardless of Li. But it can be a double edged sword.
