> I have a question... Does lithium cause any movement disorders or will it exabberate my dystonia or dyskenesia?

I know lithium can cause tremor in some people. However, Ive never read or heard anything about lithium causing EPS like symptoms similar to neuroleptics. That would be a question for your doctor. I know I took lithium to augment my antidepressant once and never noticed any muscle stiffening type side effects like Ive always gotten with atypical anti-psychotics.

I always considered lithium to be a pretty safe drug.
