LITHIUM

/Tag: LITHIUM

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

Lithium 1mg per day or 5mg once a week are no doubt enough to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s. I believe lithium 5mg daily – or ~150mg once a week – is probably better.  [Lithium orotate 5mg, 20mg, 120mg, and 130mg pills are inexpensive on Amazon.] Lithium 150 mg per day is advisable for anyone [...]

NUTRACEUTICALS for depression 8/12/2019, Robert D. McMullen, MD

Over the years I have occasionally had good success for depression with fish oil, NAC, inositol, L-methylfolate, very low dose lithium (150mg). I have not used a probiotic long enough to have seen obvious success. In a discussion on CUPP, others had a similar experience with inositol as I have had, finding it unimpressive.  However, [...]

Should We All Take a Bit of Lithium?

THE idea of putting a mind-altering drug in the drinking water is the stuff of sci-fi, terrorist plots and totalitarian governments. Considering the outcry that occurred when putting fluoride in the water was first proposed, one can only imagine the furor that would ensue if such a thing were ever suggested.

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 [...]
