Best Answer
I am not a doctor but I do not believe so, it a small dose, not anywhere close to that of a Psychiatric patient. I would say that alcohol intake is a very individual thing, so that is something to be considered between you and your primary care doctor in general anyways. I always use my pharmacist when I have questions about non prescription things, any pharmacist, they have tons of knowledge!

Could there be any potential side effect of using this if not combined with any other drugs?? Also, should it be taken with or without food?

Lithium is an alkalizing mineral, in this product bound to oratic acid. It is not to be confused with Lithium Carbonate, a medication for treating certain mental disorders, which dulls you and lowers your metabolism because it attacks your thyroid. I have taken Lithium Orotate for 1 year and haven't noticed any side effects although taking it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. I do not take any prescribed medications. I also give it to my autistic son, who takes epilepsy medications, and have seen only positive results.

I have bipolar looking to get lithium salt supplements is this the one?

Best Answer
Yes, it is. BPII/ADHD... helps. I use other things here and there (not necessarily safe, easy to dose) -- like MMJ (barely but maybe this yr), citicholine, adhd medicine. Ideally just adhd medicine, but this helped me control both (say BP: mood, sleep ADHD: Focus, sustained effort on a task, not wandering). I like it but I try to take sparringly, and maybe not around exams. Just in case*, I'm super sensitive to all kinds of things. This is more bioavailable than Carbonate supposedly. I still got motor ticks from it. I never took rx Lithium nor similar mood stabilizers. I did take Lamictal for less than 3 mo but had major hair loss. Anyways, this is pretty good, decent 8/10 for me, maybe higher if not for the ADHD issues which are kind of more severe, but they play into each other. Cheers, good luck. I think you'll like it.

The manufacturer has taken this product off their website, and my local Natural Grocer has a big blank space where it used to be on the shelf. Does anyone know if KAL will continue making this product?

How Long Does It Take Lithium Orotate To Work?
iHerb Customer

Best Answer
I am taking it with turmeric to aid in brain health. I get the magazine Bottomline Personal and they interviewed a doctor who said this works. At this time I really don't have cognitive decline more than what is normal for my age group. So, to answer your question, I have no idea how long it takes to work. That doctor said twice a day, and that's what I do.
