What can happen if you drink alcohol while on Lithium?
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.
