Abstract

In a longitudinal outpatient study, the authors found that lithium produced a mild decrease in depth of depression scores among patients who had been on the drug for more than seven months, as compared with patients who had been receiving lithium less than seven months. They assess the factors contributing to reported positive clinical results of maintenance lithium treatment in recurrent affective disorder.
