Abstract

Bipolar disorder is a disorder characterized by periods of depression and elevated mood. It is also known as manic-depressive illness or bipolar affective disorder (BPAD). The cause is unclear, with environmental and genetic factors playing key roles. Treatment includes medications like antipsychotics and mood stabilizers, and psychotherapy. Lithium is a commonly used mood stabilizer in the management of BPAD. It is known to cause a series of adverse effects like thyroid dysfunction, diabetes insidious, tremors, etc. This report showcases a case of bipolar disorder who was on Lithium and developed 3 episodes of vertigo, one month after starting therapy for the same.
