Lithium Rash - Anyone else get one?

Has anyone had a rash from taking Lithium Carbonate.

I take 800mg daily.

My rash didnt start until month 9.

Does this match anyone elses experience.

If it does, what did they do to eradicate this side effect.

Thanks guys.

Re: Lithium Rash - Anyone else get one?

paulcookson :

In all the long history of Lithium carboniate that I have taken it (35 years ) I have never had a rash reaction.

Your 800mg is a small dose.

I would suggest that you check with your pdoc on this "rash" problem.

I would think that it may due another med you may be taking.
