How does one deal with a bipolar child

I mean most of the time he is fine .He's on Lithium. But one he's off it he's hard to manage.

He's goes on paranoidly about how fat he is.
(Even though he's 2 pounds underweight) And gets dizzy and giddy when something absoulutely normal happens.

We cant keep him constantly on lithium because he gets a bit drowzy and sleepy when he's on it. We administer it before school and when he goes to bed. Which is very late because of his mild insomnia.

Dont get me wrong he's great in school and doesn't back talk at all.
He rarely gets angry.
