In reply to lithium and unipolar depression, posted by wishingstar on November 7, 2006, at 20:24:57

Research indicates that bipolar I individuals taking lithium are 20 times less likely to commit suicide than similarly-diagnosed people not taking lithium. This effect is not matched by other mood stabilizers or antidepressants.

That's the research that the doctor probably hopes will carry over to your case.
