In brief: Thyroid and kidney

Lithium toxicity, thyroid effects, and kidney effects are probably the more severe side effects of lithium. It is best to work with your physician to monitor any side effects of lithium. Lithium is quite beneficial though for those with bipolar or if it is used as an adjunct to treat major depression.
