Lithium may affect your weight in several ways, including lowering metabolism. It does however also increase appetite and this is one way you can intervene - try not to overeat. Rehular excercise and heathy diets may also help significantly.
If none of these are effective you may have to ask your prescribing doctor for an alterative treatment.
