Bowden: lithium worsens cycling-reasons?

Hello, I downloaded the slides (only) and went through them (from your presentation). I noticed the slide that showed a worsening of cycling with lithium compared to placebo (although showing improvement with valproate). Could you elaborate on why you suspect this is? Could lithium's suppression of thyroid function be the root cause? If so, what is your opinions and techniques for thyroid augmentation for cycling in euthyroid bipolar patients?

thanks in advance,
