Hot Weather

Sunshine and warm weather make a welcome return but we always advise our patients to take care as well as enjoy themselves

Some antipsychotics and other medications can make you more sun sensitive.

Lithium is a drug that helps mood stability but depends on fluid levels being with normal range so as you dry out in the hot weather the potential dehydration can lead to higher lithium levels so its important to keep normally hydrated even in this lovely weather.

The same applys when you go on holiday

Keep safe. Use sun cream with a high spf and also keep normally hydrated.
