      heres how lithium may help ...
      Indications and Usage for Lithium
      Lithium is indicated in the treatment of manic episodes of Bipolar Disorder. Bipolar Disorder, Manic (DSM-III) is equivalent to Manic Depressive illness, Manic, in the older DSM-II terminology.

      Lithium is also indicated as a maintenance treatment for individuals with a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder. Maintenance therapy reduces the frequency of manic episodes and diminishes the intensity of those episodes which may occur.

      Typical symptoms of mania include pressure of speech, motor hyperactivity, reduced need for sleep, flight of ideas, grandiosity, elation, poor judgment, aggressiveness, and possibly hostility. When given to a patient experiencing a manic episode, Lithium may produce a normalization of symptomatology within 1 to 3 weeks.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Like Magpie said, you may experience a temporary increase in loudness, but it will go away. It's not an unpleasant test. Have it done, especially if you have H. It will give them a baseline for what you can tolerate now and refer to it in the future. Often hyperacusis does lessen over time.
