(1) Lithium toxicity is closely related to serum lithium levels and can occur at doses close to therapeutic levels. Lithium carbonate may impair mental and/or physical abilities. Lithium should not be given to patients with significant renal or cardiovascular disease, severe debilitation or dehydration or sodium depletion, since the risk of lithium toxicity is very high in such patients.
