In brief: Side effects
The most commonly experienced include fine hand tremor, metallic taste in mouth, headache-mild, nausea, dirrehea and dizziness.
Although not exclusively, experiencing side effects is somewhat dependent on lithium blood levels and how well you stay hydrated. The higher the level, the more side effects in general. Important to drink plenty of water especially if active and perspire.
