Can I take Aceon if I'm on lithium?

There are reported cases of people overdosing on lithium, a drug used to treat bipolar disorder, after taking it along with medications similar to Aceon (perindopril). Aceon is a blood pressure medication that belongs to a class of drugs called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. People who also take a diuretic (water pill) may be at added risk of complications from taking both lithium and Aceon. If you take both Aceon and lithium your doctor should monitor the amount of lithium in your blood frequently.
