    They were talking about drugs that are addictive and they said lithium was! Do what? Are they for real? How stupid! What next insulin?

    Now if a psychiatrist prescribes a person lithium for bipolar then I dont think anyone needs to question if they need it even if they are an addict! Its not a narcotic, its not one of the azipam family.

    Now I did understand their worry about their patient that was still on suboxone for three years.

    l would agree I don't think of lithium as addictive although you may have to taper off if you stop taking it... but that doesn't make it addictive.

    However I think drug addicts can abuse anything.

    What channel was this? You should write the CEO of the channel that aired it and complain.

    they said addictive. I did a double take and rewound it to make sure it wasnt librium.
