Some months back, I started taking lithium. When I went on it, my doctor warned me that I would have to stop taking ibuprofen and switch to tylenol instead when in need of a pain killer. Fine, I thought. Unfortunately, the switch has not been ideal for me. [more inside]

Lithium production of human body

How is lithium produced by the body? Is it broken from larger molecules (ionized) or supplied by the food intake in the basic element form? I know that lower than some certain concentration level in blood *may* be the result of bipolar disorder and physicians try to cure that by administering lithium tablets to patients. What I do not know is how lithium is naturally produced and maintained by the body. Wikipedia article on lithium is of little help, maybe the subject needs deeper digging. Thanks!

I'm looking for coping strategies, techniques, etc that might help mitigate this. [more inside]
