> > I am still trying to find the optimal dosage of lithium. 300mg was too little. I really didn't want to waste time at 450mg, so I went right up to 600mg. If I can do just as well at 450mg, then I can experiment with that later.

> Is your current dose of lithium therapeutic in the sense that if you took a blood test you would test out in the recommended range for lithium?

No.

> Or are you just looking for the dose of lithium that is synergistic with your med combo?

Yes.

LOL

I am titrating based upon response. Once I settle on a dosage, I will want to get a blood level just to see where I'm at. I'm just very curious. In order to glean the neuroprotective and neurogenic effects of lithium, the minimum blood concentration is about 0.3 ng/mL. I bet 300mg was too low to produce this level.

I think I just got lucky. We'll see. This chapter hasn't been completely written yet.
