I have recently converts back to L/O after being put on Carb during a hospital stay...and might I advise you if you are a L/O user and go to hospital take your own...they will put you on Carb...for me resulted in severe toxicity, hallucinations, etc. Now I'm in final stage of converting back and fine tuning dosage. Does anyone know the correct blood level to strive for with orotate...I know it is much lower(I've done well/stable at. 02...anyone else have embers to share?
Also, if you are struggling for stability check out the books by Dr Robert T. Cochran, MD, "The Opiate Cure"...EXCELLENT READING...and it works if you can find an MD to support...I use opiates to augment L/O treatment, when dose is fine tuned I'm the best I can be!!!

Just wanted to mention that I now buy my L/O from Swanson Vitamins, because Pure Formulas discontinued, at the price that I'd been buying it.

Hi Ann, It has been 2 years for me on L/O (after 30+ years on Lithium Carbonate excluding pregnancies)....and I am happy with the L/O, and wouldn't go back to the carbonate. Even with the extreme sadness of losing my father this past year, I feel it has helped me as much as the L. Carb, without the side effects. Hope this helps you, Ann, and anyone else who might be on the site. By the way, I take 2 (5 mg) in the morning, and 3 at night.

Would be interesting to know if l/O is still working for some of you on this site. I have decided to try it again only this time go up to 12 tabs if I have to. Come on people lets get this site moving again and send out some encouragement. thanks

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!
