Hector Warnes: Pyridoxine in the treatment of lithium-induced tremor 

 

Gordon Johnson’s response to Hector Warnes’ reply

 

       You report satisfactory mood stability and tolerability with the current pharmacological management. The use of pyridoxine in controlling lithium-induced tremor is supported in the studies you quoted. The lithium monitoring that you have put in place is critical in maintaining mood stability and avoiding lithium toxicity in patients with maintenance blood levels around 1Meq L.
