Does anyone out there have any information on Lithium and any deficiencys it may or may not cause and do I need to supplement?

I only take high E.P.A fish oil and I feel that it does benefit my low mood.

Thanks.

I think your Doctor would have told you if you needed to take anything extra.

Do you eat a well balanced diet? Fruit? Veg?

Edit: I think you have to keep your fluids up whilst taking Lithium to avoid becoming dehydrated. However, don't drink too much as this interferes with lithium levels. I recommend you have a chat with the Doctor just to be sure.
