Lithium is known to dehydrate your body, which is why doctors encourage drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day. Alcohol can dehydrate your body at higher rates. Lithium is basically a salt. It will not cause you much harm to have a few drinks one or two nights out of the month. However, excessive drinking can lead to serious problems with almost any organ in your body especially the liver. Please be extra careful and consult your doctor about drinking alcohol while taking lithium.
