Curious where you buy L/O?

jwf2, Yes that sounds like a high dose! But maybe not for some...I was on Lithium Carbonate for more than 30 years (minus 3 pregnancies)...and ranged from 600 to 900 mg. The comments about Doctors not knowing about L/O seems to be the norm. Would usually need a holistic doctor to be understanding of the reasons (lack of side effects etc.) that people want to switch over. I have been on L/O for 2 years this coming February, and wouldn't go back to carbonate. I do understand that it may not be the answer for everyone.

Just the usual cocktail of poisons. Lithium doesn't appear to be the first choice these days. They certainly know nothing about L/O
I didn't even tell him I was using it +

I've decided to stop it anyway. I don't have anyone here in Scotland to support me with it/

When I was first diagnosed I gradually worked up to 900mg/ day to get my blood level right. In June 2012 I converted to Orotate, over about a 2 month period 6 caps per day, 5mg each. In June of this year I changed brands and stayed at same dose. When I went to ER within 12 hrs they had me on 1200 mg of carbonate. The hallucinations and craziness started about 10 days later and got progressively worse until I had the seizure and was taken back to the ER. I was back home in 5 days, but the craziness lasted another 3(?) weeks. And when I say crazy...it was the most bizarre stuff I have ever experienced.

Hi jwf2,

I am sorry you went through the horrible experience of toxicity (as well as your devastating depression!) I may have missed it...but what dose of lithium carbonate did they prescribe?

When I changed brands I apparently was not getting enough Lyrics ...over 2-3 months I went into a deep suicidal depression. Thankfully I finally had enough sense to take myself to ER...they had no idea what orotate was and put me on a large( 25% more Carb than I had ever taken). After 5 days I seemed to be getting better but was in no frame of mind to question doses, was sent home. After another few days things started getting weird. Walking to grocery store I had a seizure, passed out, was taken to ER. They reduced dose by50%,but it still took several weeks to stabilize. Read "Lithium Toxicity " on Medscape. And be careful!

Based on my summer experience I believe, but certainly don't "know" that the greatest threat from L/O is underside...put me in hospital with dangerous level of depression...which was followed by lithium toxicity on carbonate. Both are dangerous. I don't know where you are geographically, but highly suggest you get an MD or Naturopath to assist with dosage!

Of course I am not an expert, Ann...but I believe I would do the same.

Thank you for your kind words Michelle. I did come out of depression but went straight on a high for five weeks, now I'm back down. Strangely enough I'm still working with L/O I have no faith in any of these Psych meds. I have increased the L/O to 8 a day

That's very worrying since Dr Millar states it's safe to go up to 10 a day. In fact he has stated on you tube this year he is giving babys 8 a day
