Ann- thx for the forward....Unfortunately after year+ with no issues I have been off and on with depression....probably because of other drugs I believe were symbiotic that my MD made me quit taking....new Obama rules! Anyway I've reached the point I'm not comfortable with care on the Big Island....and looking at a possible double knee replacent. Probably take me a while to research and pull off, because right now I'm in bed with a broken foot...my md said it was a sprain, but the next day I went to ER and they said it was a fractured metatarsal....life goes on but right now it's tough....hope you find a solution for your meds....

Hi Torie.

I brought your message up again, Hope you don't mind. I don't feel L/O is working for me as I am now eight weeks into this depression. However since the start of this year I have been on and of Wellbutrin like a yo yo, trying one thing and another.
Having said all that I have decided to stick with the L/O anyway, even although most people seem to have an instant response to it, I was wondering with your experience if there is any more advice you can give me.

Thank you

Ann

" Ann --

I've had a lot of experience with lithium orotate use within our family since we have bipolar disorder on both sides! I've researched lithium orotate use for many years. For most people who use it, it has been a godsend!

It's been my observation, that lithium orotate is an excellent mood leveler. In general, it will address mania (aggression, out of control behavior, etc.) very well. And is a great stabilizer in all ways, and actually is something that everyone's brain can benefit from.

REGARDING DEPRESSION, in general, I believe that lithium orotate usually doesn't fully address severe depression. You will probably need an antidepressant in addition--paxil, wellbutrin, etc. However, it's ESSENTIAL that you continue to use lithium orotate as a stabilizer (if you're taking it for bipolar disorder.) Just an antidepressant alone will result in very unstable brain chemistry.

It can also REDUCE the amount of antidepressant you may need if you are taking it solely for depression. In these cases, it's often a very good adjunct treatment.

I hope this helps." Using as a reference to respond

Hi jwf2

I have been taking six a day, went up to eight but made me tired, don't know whether it's because I'm depressed. Afraid to make things worse

Hi Ann,

I am sorry that you are still depressed. I don't know if you should continue the L/O or not, but I thought I would tell you the place that I order from, in case you want to continue. I have used Pureformulas.com for a long time...great service (quick 2-3 days)..free shipping...and about 11.00 for 120 capsules.

Best to you, my friend!

Hi everyone.

Still depressed. I have only two more weeks of L/o left. I'm thinking of giving up. Don't think it's going to work for me. good luck to you all.

Having gone through all the posts it seems to me that everyone on L/O Has had either an immediate response or nothing. I'm sure that is not the case for everyone. I would really appreciate hearing from anyone who had a gradual response. Thanks

I was taking Wellbutrin, however I found this drug to be over stimulating in more ways than one (cough) not nice. Although it did get me through the depressions, personally I would rather sleep through my depressions than have all this false activity going on.
I am now on Roboxitine along with L/O. I know this drug is not available to you in the U.S. but seemingly it's not unlike Strattera.
I have chosen this as I have already tried S.S.R.I & S.N.R.I drugs

I am taking six, I went up to eight but I was afraid I was overdoing it. I have never taken carbonate.

How much are you taking? I used to take 900 mg carbonate...now I take 6 orotate = 30mg elemental lithium...for ~ 12 months...the longest period of stability I have had in the past 5+ years...maybe adjust dose?
