Believe it or not, there is a lot of controversy about the neuroprotective/neurotoxic actions of lithium.
Lithium has proconvulsant and anticonvulsant effects. Lithium can be *highly neurotoxic* if it goes over the upper blood level.
Also, when lithium is combined with the cholinergic agent pilocarpine, it can induce a model of temporal lobe epilepsy.
