Hi Angela,

Lithium level tends to rise when used in combination with ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, etc.) and most of the NSAIDs. It is not an absolute contraindication but your lithium blood level should be checked a week or so later after starting an NSAID and the lithium dose adjusted accordingly. You may experience lithium toxicity if this is not monitored. There are other meds that can cause increase lithium levels. Will post later for more. Need to attend to something, quick.
