Because of possible teratogenicity, lithium should be used during the first trimester only if clinically essential. Lithium levels should be monitored throughout pregnancy and dosage adjusted as necessary. Sodium-restricted diets and diuretics should be used with caution. Lithium dose should be reduced with the onset of labor. Mothers who choose to breast-feed should watch for signs of toxicity in their babies. With their consent, pregnant women on lithium should be reported to the American Register of Lithium Babies.
