Hi Jonathan,

No disagreement on this part of the globe. My previous posts regarding the "therapeutic" level of lithium pertains only as anti-manic levels in healthy adult invidivuals. Again, this is not etched in stone. Indeed, lower doses (and levels) of Lithium do well as augmentation treatment with antidepressants.

Indeed, the use of lithium as augmentation treatment for depression is an "off label" indication. Lithium, here in the US, is only approved for treatment of acute mania and prophylactic treatment of bipolar disorder.

Thanks for your comment.
