The Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme should cover vitamins, minerals and supplements that are more effective/preventative than standard big-pharma drugs. It would save taxpayers a lot of money in the long run. Two obvious examples are omega-3-rich supplements like salmon oil, and magnesium. Both of these promote general health and, more specifically, prevent and ameliorate the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder. Magnesium citrate in particular is a great, symptom-free substitute for lithium.
