Here you go, Ron. A good article on lithium and BDNF.

http://hdlighthouse.org/see/drugs/lithium2.htm

I didn't realize that exercise increased BDNF, so thanks for that info.

One more question perhaps you know the answer. I don't know if this is still the party line, but the action of lithium was supposed work by inhibiting inositol uptake. This surprises and confuses me because inositol is normally beneficial for depression (especially in myo-inositol form). Some studies say 'yes it helps BP' other say stay away from it. Do you know anything about this? I've got a dozen bottles of pharm grade myo-inositol that are confused about their purpose in life (so are we all it seems).

Also, was that you taking SAM-e? Are you still? I (400mg) am and it seems to help with focus and fibro pain, but I'm wary of anything that could incite hypomania. However, for my husband who gets low level dysthymia it works very well at 400mg.
