Brand names: Lithobid, Eskalith, Lithotabs
Lithium (brand names Lithobid, Eskalith, Lithotabs) in pharmacology refers to use of the lithium ion as a drug. Lithium affects the flow of sodium through nerve and muscle cells in the body. Sodium affects excitation or mania. A number of chemical salts of lithium are used medically as a mood stabilizing drug, primarily in the treatment of bipolar disorder, where they have a role in the treatment of depression and particularly of mania, both acutely and in the long term. Lithium is used to treat the manic episodes of manic depression. Manic symptoms include hyperactivity, rushed speech, poor judgment, reduced need for sleep, aggression, and anger. Lithium is used for treating manic episodes due to bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness). Lithium (Lithobid, Eskalith, Lithotabs) is also combined with antidepressants to treat depression. As a mood stabilizer, lithium is probably more effective in preventing mania than depression, and may reduce the risk of suicide.

Frequently asked questions:
What is a generic drug?
Generic medication is a medicine which is chemically equivalent to a brand-name product, but available under its generic chemical name. Generic medication is identical (bio-equivalent) to its branded drug equivalent in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics and intended use. Generic drugs are manufactured by certified producer. Mind that the pills you will receive from us differ in appearance from the brand name ones. The looks of medications as well as brand names are the intellectual property of the brand manufacturer. Thus to avoid any accusation of copyright infringement we have to change the shape and the color of the generic pills as well as use the name of the active ingredient (generic name) instead of the brand name for printing on pills. Please be aware that the generic pills differ in appearance from the brand name medications. Our pills are round shaped and blister packed (10 pills per each blister). The name of the active ingredient as well as the weight are specified on the pill itself.
Why are generic pills cheaper than the brand name ones?
The price difference between generic and brand is determined by a prime cost. Manufacturers of brand product spend huge amounts of money on research, testing, medical observation and analysis, marketing, branding and advertising. Producers of generic drugs only need to spend money for purchasing a chemical formula. So, you can get high quality drugs at a low price. Buy cheap Lithium (Eskalith) online.
