That question is hard to answer. It depends on factors such as your blood volume, and how well the lithium gets absorbed. Someone has written that the orotate does not release its lithium until in the brain.

Anyway, you can calculate, how much "raw" lithium a dose contains.
From https://www.balancingbrainchemistry.co.uk/peter-smith/107/Lithium-Orotate-for-Bipolar-and-Depression/Lithium-Orotate-Dosages-.html :
"Lithium-carbonate contains 18.8% of elemental lithium; Lithium-orotate contains 3.83% of elemental lithium".
