ALZHEIMER’S

Bottom line on dose of lithium for Alzheimer’s prophylaxis:

USING LOW DOSE LITHIUM TO PREVENT BOTH ALZHEIMER’S AND DEPRESSION.

MY RATIONALE FOR USING LOW DOSE LITHIUM—150MG/DAY—TO PREVENT BOTH ALZHEIMER’S AND DEPRESSION.  Dementia is a major public health problem.  The prevalence is 1%  at the age 60 years, and rises to over  30% of the population by age 90 (Nunes et al., 2007).   A history of depression doubles the risk of Alzheimer’s.  Bipolar disorder increases
