Lithium is as safe and effective for children with bipolar disorder as it is for adults, at least in the short term.

This is according to a randomised, placebo-controlled study involving 81 children aged from 7 to 17 diagnosed with the condition.

The results show that the those on lithium experienced far more significant improvement in their symptoms over eight weeks than the children on the placebo.
