Is There a Link Between Calcium Levels & Lithium Therapy In Bipolar Disorder

I’m on with my reading and research on Lithium and I have a question about something that I was hoping somebody may be able to share their knowledge on it with me.

Lithium in higher, therapeutic doses can inhibit the resynthesis of phosphatidylinostol diphosphate. This is why it is used for mania. Inositol triphosphate and diacylgylcerol are recombined after their tasks for the resynthesis. Inositol works on the calcium ion channels so I’m just wondering if there is a link between calcium levels having an impact on mania in bipolar, that in turn lithium remedies. Is there anything linking calcium to lithium?

I’m a 38 year old male who has recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I have found it as a new chapter in my life that has opened my eyes to a whole new perspective on myself and everything around me.
