Escitalopram and Lithium carbonate drug interactions - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data
Drug interactions are reported among people who take Escitalopram and Lithium carbonate. Common interactions include disorientation among females and drug ineffective among males.
The phase IV clinical study analyzes what interactions people who take Escitalopram and Lithium carbonate have. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 314 people who take Escitalopram and Lithium carbonate from the FDA, and is updated regularly. You can use the study as a second opinion to make health care decisions.
Phase IV trials are used to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor drug effectiveness in the real world. With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe is running millions of phase IV trials and makes the results available to the public. Our original studies have been referenced on 600+ medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature.

How the study uses the data?
The study uses data from the FDA. It is based on escitalopram oxalate and lithium carbonate (the active ingredients of Escitalopram and Lithium carbonate, respectively), and Escitalopram and Lithium carbonate (the brand names). Other drugs that have the same active ingredients (e.g. generic drugs) are not considered. Dosage of drugs is not considered in the study. Patients in the study may take other drugs besides Escitalopram and Lithium carbonate.
