JH,

Not that I know of, I do know it can cause weight gain.  Also, it can cause liver problems, but I have not heard of cholestrol issues.  I was on Lithium for over 2 1/2 years and never had that issue.

Are you on any other medicine, that can be the reason.  If you are really concerned you should bring it up with your pdoc.
