How You Can Spot Signs of Lithium Toxicity

Common signs of lithium overdose or poisoning that are often reported can include persistent
diarrhea, along with the following symptoms,

  • Vomiting or severe nausea

  • Coarse trembling of hands or legs

  • Frequent muscle twitching such as pronounced jerking of arms or legs

  • Blurred vision

  • Marked dizziness

  • Difficulty walking

  • Slurred speech

  • Irregular heartbeat

  • Swelling of the feet or lower legs

Even if your lithium levels are not toxic, serious side effects such as the above suggest
that your dose may be too high or that lithium is not the right med for you.
