@Dr. Harvinder Singh
I agree no amount of alcohol is good with lithium.
It is important for this patient (without alcohol use disorder) to be able to drink 5 or so drinks on an occasion with his friends on the weekend on a monthly basis or so. Would you suggest avoiding lithium if this is his plan…just not wanting to throw it out so easily as it is gold standard? Or is there anything we can do to mitigate a risk there?
