> So I think its more cost-effective to go with Carbonate. The notion that Orotate is magically transported to the brain and only works there sounds like a typical false supplement claim to me. They know how to rid people of their money. Life (and the body) is not a fairytale.

The problem, Lambdage, is that I can't convince her GP doctor to prescribe 150 mg/day of lithium carbonite for my mother. 150 mg/day is probably ideal, and is being compared to 300 mg/day and 600 mg. Many researchers feel that 150 mg/day is overkill. Her dementia is progressing rapidly. He wants me to take her to a "specialist". She is not at all receptive to this. I was lucky enough to get her to a geriatrician who made the diagnosis. CT Scans, MRI, and MRI showed vascular insufficiency, so she actually has mixed-dementia, which is not at all uncommon.

I found a lithium orotate product put out by Weyland. It is labeled as containing 20 mg elemental lithium. That should be enough as long as there is nothing preventing it from getting into the brain.
