PBF asked 3 years ago

Hi,
 
I’ve read everywhere that lithium is a good antimanic agent.  But little is said about what it does for depression.  How good is lithium for depression, for the depressive phase?  Does it help prevent depression?
 
Thanx for any input, I’m just curious about lithium.  Started it a week ago.
