Lithium Fatigue Causes and Reviews


Everyone feels tired now and then. Sometimes you may just want to stay in bed. But, after a good night's sleep, most people feel refreshed and ready to face a new day. If you continue to feel tired for weeks, it's time to see your doctor. He or she may be able to help you find out what's causing your Fatigue and recommend ways to relieve it.

Fatigue itself is not a disease. Medical problems, treatments, and personal habits can add to Fatigue. These include

  • Taking certain medicines, such as antidepressants, antihistamines, and medicines for nausea and pain
  • Having medical treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation
  • Recovering from major surgery
  • Anxiety, stress, or depression
  • Staying up too late
  • Drinking too much alcohol or too many caffeinated drinks
  • Pregnancy

One disorder that causes extreme Fatigue is chronic Fatigue syndrome (CFS). This Fatigue is not the kind of tired feeling that goes away after you rest. Instead, it lasts a long time and limits your ability to do ordinary daily activities.

Lithium causes depression by way of suppression by way of a mental block it creates in ones mind . this leads to suicidal thoughts then thinking of killing oneself. if you are misdiagnosed bi polar and you are not this will probably happen. if there is a reason you end up in a mental institution and nobody cares and you are labeled bipolar by a doctor who doesn t have a clue you might possibly spend you re life in there being overly medicated to offset the drugs you shouldn t be on in the first place.
