Review: could Lithium carbonate cause Dehydration?
Summary: Dehydration is found among people who take Lithium carbonate, especially for people who are female, 60+ old, have been taking the drug for 5 - 10 years, also take medication Prilosec, and have Bipolar disorder.
We study 14,822 people who have side effects while taking Lithium carbonate from FDA and social media. Among them, 344 have Dehydration. Find out below who they are, when they have Dehydration and more.
