Abstract

Summary

Because lithium is now recommended as the initial long-term treatment for bipolar disorder in general and has a lower teratogenic potential than originally reported, it may become more frequently prescribed in childbearing women. The article by Wesseloo et al in this issue provides helpful data and guidance for managing lithium dosing in the perinatal period.
