Lithium is a mineral in that it appears naturally in the Earth's crust.

Just because lithium is a naturally-occurring mineral rather than a complicated organic molecule, doesn't make it any less a drug. Compare the RDA of lithium in milligrams to the amount used in medicinal preparations. I would treat lithium as a drug if it is ingested in supra-nutritional amounts.

Sometimes, I think low dosages of lithium are a sort of aspirin for the brain.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
