Lithium blood levels are irrelevant when using lithium as a low-dosage treatment for depression. The level might not exceed 0.2.mEq/L. You really have to establish the right dosage clinically - trial and error in this case.

You simply start at 150 mg/day and go no higher than 600 mg/day. I think that you should stay on each dosage for 2-3 weeks before increasing another 150 mg/day.

I find that taking too much (450 mg/day) lithium exacerbates my depression, and makes me feel flat, apathetic, less creative and generally unmotivated. For me, 300 mg/day of lithium is optimal. Another advantage of using low dosages of lithium is that there is almost no liability for thyroid or kidney dysfunction.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
