Scott,

You just add the lithium and if its going to help it should be effective in a couple of weeks. The blood level of lithium can be quite modest (about 0.5mmol/l 12 hours after the last dose). As I mentioned, low dose aripiprazole can also be helpful when added to Parnate.

He is a professor at Oxford University, but unfortunately does not see patients.

Do you think that means that possibly the lithium may kick start the parnate ? Otherwise I cant see the point of taking lithium as it apparently doesnt do much for anxiety or depression.
