I've been taking lithium for about four years now. I had some acne before I started it, but since I've been on it, my acne has gotten severe and last year I had a cyst on my ovary and other cysts also. I recently started seeing a new dermatologist and he told me that the Lithuim is the worst thing that I could be on, considering that I have always had irregular periods and the fact the I have started developing cysts throughout my body and also the severe acne. I was blown away that even through all of my emergency room visits and hospital stays that not one doctor mentioned how the lithium was causing all of these problems. Has anyone else experienced these problems, or similar side affects with lithium?
