Anyone taking or heard of over the counter product Lithium Orotate (120 mg) that is used to treat mood swings, mania or depression.  I've read many positive reviews from users who switched from prescription medication to this product.  Thanks.

Never heard of it, i take 600mg prescription Lithium and I would be curious to know the difference. You didn't find it in one of those store's that sells "bath salts" and "pipes" did you?

I believe it is a supplement sold in healthfood stores.

I'd never heard of it so looked it up.

Lithium orotate has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Even though it has been available over the counter for many years, studies have never been conducted on human participants, according to the PsychCentral website. Lithium orotate also releases higher levels of lithium into the brain and body in smaller dosages than the regular brand of lithium carbonate. Lithium carbonate still affects the kidneys in dangerous ways in low dosages. If lithium orotate has the ability to release higher levels of lithium into the body in lower dosages, this means that people taking lithium orotate are at higher risks of overdose, kidney problems, kidney failure and even death. Lithium orotate can also be used to decrease symptoms of Bipolar Disorder. The fact that it is available to anyone in an over the counter form and the fact that it has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration makes lithium orotate very dangerous--- especially when used to self medicate.

Think I'll pass.
