Any ideas and experiences with lithium Orotate 5 mg ?

Its for bipolar disorder. I took it, didn’t help with sz. Its a very strong med, it caused me tingling, tirendness, made me sleepy and caused eyelid tremors. Be cautious with it because it can cause hypothyrodism and weight gain.


The Orotate??? its should not have that side effects like the normal lithium right?

The orotate is stronger than the regular lithium that drs prescribe. I took the lithium orotate by Dr Nieper 120mg giving 4.6mg actual elemental lithium. One pill gave me these side effects and I stopped:

im supposed to take 3 times 5 mg a day… low dose not 120 mg wow yes thats a strong dose friend!

5mg elemental or regular? Elemental is the actual dose that crosses the blood brain barrier that is free and not attached to any other substance.

On the supplement they should write the actual elemental lithium which is lithium ion alone not connected to anything. There is many forms of lithium:

Many different lithium salts can be used as medication, including lithium carbonate, lithium acetate, lithium sulfate, lithium citrate, lithium orotate, and lithium gluconate.

5 mg orotate… please explain if you like… btw so you took 120mg dose a day?

Yea 120mg orotate gives 4.6mg elemental lithium which is the actual dose absorbed.

Yea 5mg orotate should be harmless but make sure you read how much elemental lithium is written on the box, if its not written I am pretty sure its very low.

I never had depression, only schizophrenia.
Voices made me suicidal by telling me that I need to kill myself to prove to myself and to the world that I am God.
I took tons of supplements before my sz diagnosis because I felt something was wrong with me. The most dangerous I took was L-Dopa from Mucuna Pruriens, it made me hallucinate and see white shiny spots.

yeah i know those spots hallucinations, clonazepam is controlling those seizure type hallucinations caused by the abilify…

what are you taking now?

Nvm I just read it can also treat depression.

I am taking 3mg Risperdal, its the best for me so far no side effects. Abilify gave me multiple addiction issues, made me hypersexual and impulsive. Latuda gave me bad nausea and bad akathisia. Zyprexa made me very hungry, gain weight and I developed high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

it’s ruining me

You should switch to another ap.
Me I was gambling with cryptocurrency, compulsive shopping (buying useless sometimes expensive stuff and threw them in the garbage), weed and alcohol addiction and binge eating. I was blind for 9 years and I lost over 100 000$. Its when I started to draw cash from my visa bcz I emptied my bank account that I woke up and said it could be the meds.

I looked up Abilify online and addictions were the first serious side effect. My psychiatrist confirmed this and switched to Latuda
