Tox Tunes #93: Lithium (Evanescence)

January 26, 2015, 12:54 am

As with the Nirvana song of the same title, the lyrics are not completely clear as to whether the singer is describing the experience of the drug, or using it as a metaphor for emotional ambivalence. (We should note that in fact Nirvana’s “Lithium” never mentions the drug in its lyrics.)

I thought of this song after reviewing the new paper from the EXTRIP workgroup paper on extracorporeal treatment of lithium toxicity.
