Critical appraisal techniques are not only useful in evaluating evidence of therapeutic trials. In this final article of the series of evidence-based psychopharmacology, the evidence about the teratogenic effects of lithium carbonate is considered. This exercise highlights the importance of assessing the evidence oneself and not relying on the interpretation others put on it.
