Lithium orotate is a fairly new formulation, which takes a relatively small amount of lithium and, according to the formulary, delivers all of it past the blood-brain barrier rather than flushing it to the rest of your body the way lithium carbonate does. It appears to be safe and non-toxic; I've used it for over 5 months myself. A couple sites make the statement that pregnant women or lactating mothers should not take it, but I wonder why if all the lithium is being used in the brain. There are no controlled studies I am aware of.
You can find yourself paying as little as $12.20 for 200 pills and as much as $49.95 for 90. I would say don't pay the extra for the Serenity brand-name, it's all the same stuff.
