Doesn't seen to have a Brand name, Just V.R.P Vitamin Research Product. You are very lucky to respond to Lith Carbonate so quickly, it didn't work for me either. I am into my third month of depression now

What's the brand? I'll keep updating as I learn more...my primary concern is that orotate is getting a bad rap because people are using a brand that is not quality certified. My depression disappeared after 3 days on carbonate, but the lithium fog is unbearable...fyi

Sounds like a good idea. Meanwhile i've got 8 tubs to get through. The reason I bought in bulk was due to the fact I was saving money on delivery plus the customs and handling charge, it was the same for 8 as it was for one. There is only one place in the UK I can buy it and it would cost me 80 more for exactly the same stuff and the same amount. I'm pretty sure it is good stuff. I hope so anyway. I keep taking it because it does help me to sleep better.

Read my post from yesterday- unfortunately there seems to be a large disparity in quality of suppliers. I'm planning to stabilize on carbonate for a few months, then do some research to find a source for orotate with guarantee/independent quality tests.

Hi james
So sorry you are having all these problems. I've still havn't had any luck with L/O. I use V,R.P product and I get it from Relentless Improvement. Whether they are fake or not. Who knows?

IMPORTANT HEADS UP!!!

Fyi, I have been using orotate ever since early last summer. Until about 3 months ago I used "Doctors Best" and never had a problem, but for some reason Amazon stopped carrying it and I had problems finding a source, so I bought "Priority One Organic Lithium Orotate" Several other events conspired....I made the decision to stop using opioids, which became a horrendous month long detox, and right after that I broke my foot is two places and re-injured both knee's. So I was sitting around quite a bit and feeling pretty depressed....but it got worse until I was in the dark place of evil. End up in the psyche ward on suicide watch for a week. The conclusion was the orotate I was taking was completely
ineffective.....blood count below .1(should be .6- 1.2). They put me back on carbonate and within a few days I felt "normal"- but I also learned with carbonate comes the lithium fog memory issues,,,,a la alzheimers. So my plan is to get very stable and then look for a new supplier of Orotate, but I must find one that has some form purity/content guarantee.

I'll be posting this on the orotate blog....but it makes me wonder if the folks on that boards who try it and get no benefit are using a "bad source".....any ideas??

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
