lithium & strabismus
I have been prescribed lithium as a mood stabilizer.  I am not bipolar, but my psychiatrist thinks it will help with the severe depressive episodes I've been having.

My question is that I am concerned about developing strabismus ("crossed-eyes").  I've had surgery 4 times for strabismus - twice as a child and twice as an adult.  I feel like my eyes are starting to get a little crossed again and I REALLY don't want to have to deal witht crossed eyes, and eventually surgery again.

Any comments or suggestions?

what were the results of the lithium? i am curious.
i have been doing some research related to strabismus and have found studies using levadopa / citicoline ,etc. depending on the study and have found some semi promising results (it looks like there is improvement after administering the drugs in the studies)
now, i don't know how to apply that to the real world...
