Lithium isn't for everybody and it does have side effects. However, the kidney risk supposedly isn't as high as once thought. If it occurs, it can usually be caught with monitoring. There are distinct benefits however. It is one of the few meds with a proven anti-suicidal effect. Also, over time, it tends to normalize cognition, grey matter, telomere length and some other risk factors associated with bipolar (i.e. heart disease).

I can't tolerate much more than 300mg, but it has helped me at times when other meds don't. The problem is that it often puts me into a semi-apathetic state.

I agree with you that, if cognition was a bigger concern then a stimulant would be preferable to Wellbutrin. I don't think the evidence for Wellbutrin and ADHD is as strong as with Ritalin.
