We need your feedback regarding your experience using Lithium Orotate.  We want to hear about any positive changes as well as any negative changes or unusual symptoms you may experience with Lithium Orotate.  A few first time users experience an unusual feeling or a new symptom “pop-up” within a day or two of beginning their Lithium Orotate.  Normally this feeling or symptom will pass in 1-3 days as the body integrates the incredible healing benefit of Lithium Orotate.  If however this does not pass after a few days you may reduce your dosage until it does pass.  You may then increase your dosage to see if it returns.  You may be the rare person who only supplements with 1-5 mg of pure lithium daily.  Everyone is different in the dosage they require to get maximal relief of their symptoms.  Typical daily dosing is 1-8 tablets/day for children, adults and the elderly.

Symptoms of anxiety for example, are benefited by Lithium Orotate dosing between 5- 40 mg of pure elemental lithium, i.e., 1- 8 tablets per day.  There is 5 mg of pure lithium in each 120 mg of Lithium Orotate.  Occasionally and rarely, a few individuals do not get the maximal relief that they are looking for until they take 10-12 tablets = 50-60 mg elemental lithium (EL).  If you are taking 50-60 mg EL per day over the long-term we request that you have your thyroid function monitored to be sure that Lithium Orotate does not lower your thyroid hormones too much.  At this level  50-60 mg EL of Lithium Orotate we do not have any long-term analysis of thyroid function regarding Lithium Orotate so it is essential if you are taking  50-60 mg EL per day beyond a 30 day period that you monitor your thyroid function.  Additionally monitoring your kidney function is a good idea if you have any kidney disease.  According to Jonathan Wright, M.D.  and Stanley Olsztyn, M.D. doses up to 40 mg EL per day is safe for the kidneys and thyroid function, but we do not have long-term laboratory research above 40 mg EL.  So please help us do this research by sharing your lab tests with us.

  1. My name is Dennis and I am a veteran. You may contact me for support at dwhv3@yahoo.com

    I started taking Dr’s Best Lithium Orotate on 1/27/12. After a few days I felt less apprehensive, frustrated, agitated, and worried. My tendency towards rage subsided. I was even civil for Valentines Day. A positive effect: I haven’t destroyed anything since I started taking Lithium…my iPhone is still intact! Spokane VA prescribed physical therapy and back exercises, but still refuses to treat documented PTSD and Major Depression. I might feel better if I could shoot back at the ones who offend me. My list is long dating back to 1973. Lithium at least neutralizes such thoughts. I encourage you to try Lithium Orotate, with a significant other monitoring and invited to provide daily feedback. My wife knew within a few days that I stopped taking Lithium and my other herbals on May 7th in compliance with Spokane VA.
    It is my intent to establish a website to share my story, my efforts to restore health, and most importantly, to make myself available to other Veterans. For the moment, I offer email as a way to contact me: Dennis at dwhv3@yahoo.com Dr. Millar has my phone number for those who are not on the grid and need direct contact…should he choose to provide that.

    My symptoms:
    Anxiety, fatigue, grinding teeth, fibromyalgia, headaches, liver damage, panic attacks, restless leg, rheumatoid arthritis, and ulcers.

    Results from Lithium Orotate supplementation: “I have such a peace, calm, quiet…and no stress at this moment. My pain level that was so terribly extreme (9+) is about a 2 today. I have been sleeping without earplugs, sleeping sound, not waking up every 2 hours hurting and stressing over the days “stress”. I’m not grinding my teeth, and as far as my nicotine addiction?? I have had NO withdraw symptoms at all and have nearly cut my intake in half!!!! In just 3 days?? Yesterday the 2nd full day of taking Lithium Orotate I went 6 hours without even thinking about a smoke…Lithium Orotate is such an awesome thing, knowing it’s a mineral in the body…Thank you SO much Dr. Millar for making this public…”

    My husband heard about Lithium Orotate on a conference call he had listened to while at work. He came home and gave me the web site and told me to take a look at it. He told me about the call and what he had heard about it. About 2 weeks later he told me to order 2 bottles of it. I have lived in chronic pain since 1999, a light sleeper always wearing ear plugs and smoking close to 2 packs of cigarettes per day depending on my “stress level”. I have a terrible anger issue brought on from childhood abuse that has carried through my life. I have injured both shoulders, neck, sciatic in both hips and have generally just “existed” and tolerated a pain level of about 200%, 24/7 since 1999. I have had anxiety, fatigue, grinding teeth, fibromyalgia, headaches, liver damage, panic attacks, restless leg, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcers…you name it…I have NO trust in the medical industry nor do I trust the “big pharma” as I know all to well from close to 15 years of research regarding them. My motto has always been “if it’s FDA approved or has anything to do with gov’t …it will never pass these lips.” After working for the gov’t for 13 years, I’m sure I know more than I ever should have known….I have never, or I should say, my body has never excepted anything prescribed or over-the-counter. If there was a side effect or warning, you could bet I would experience it….besides, I was strongly opposed to anything in that “field”….Have been researching the “herbal”, “holistic” homeopathy way for at least 12 years. I “don’t do doctors” and I “don’t do vets” either. I have a cat who is 85 years old in “human” years who hasn’t been to the vet since she was a kitten. A 5 year old rat terrier that has never had a shot, never been sick and so on.
    With that being said, I started taking Lithium Orotate, 1 tablet in the morning and 1 at night and it’s been 3 days only. I have such a peace, calm, quiet, rational, no violence and no stress at this moment. My pain level that was so terribly extreme is about a 2 today. I have been sleeping without earplugs, sleeping sound, not waking up every 2 hours hurting and stressing over the days “stress”. I’m not grinding my teeth, and as far as my nicotine addiction?? I have had NO withdraw symptoms at all and have nearly cut my intake in half!!!! In just 3 days?? Yesterday the 2nd full day of taking Lithium Orotate I went 6 hours without even thinking about a smoke, even around someone who I knew had just come in from outside from having one….did NOT bother me at all….I had NO desire to go outside and quick huff one.
    Lithium Orotate is such an awesome thing, knowing it’s a mineral in the body, knowing who Created me, and believing that in the very beginning He put everything here on the earth for us, it makes absolute sense that Lithium Orotate would and does and will work perfectly for not only myself but everyone and anyone who takes it!
    Thank you SO much Dr. Millar for making this public, for all you and yours have done for our wonderful men and woman in the military and everyone else on God’s wonderful Earth!! I will be telling everyone who has an “ear”….about this…and the awesome thing is….it’s been out there for YEARS….I LOVE IT!! I will continue to get mine through Dr. Millar. God Bless you Dr. Millar!!

  4. Dear Dr. Millar, i received my first bottle of lithium orotate yesterday. I heard you on the Power Hour radio show. I am a 52 year old woman with a trauma history. i have suffered from anxiety for 40 plus years. While i do many things from diet to exercise to keep myself well i have found no relief from painful anxiety. i have refused prescription drugs.. but did recall the almost immediate relief from taking lithium years ago.

    I took 2 lithium orotate tablets as soon as i received them and felt relief within hours. This morning i feel rested. Up till now i could sleep 12 hours and wake exhausted. i have always had a butterflies feeling in my stomach and had difficulty staying in the moment…always needing to rush to the next task…pressured speech and labile mood. I ended up isolating myself to a dangerous degree. It has been agony. This morning the butterfly feeling in my stomach is gone and i am thinking one thought at a time and do not feel pressured or rushed.

    I feel that my next task will be to undo the many behaviors i have employed to deal with my crushing anxiety. Such as staying in constant motion, among other things. Also, any thoughts i ever had about ending my life were always connected to anxiety and not circumstances. So, it is very likely this mineral will save my life .I am also tasking myself with learning to enjoy being relaxed and to finally have a good time for a change .As even recreation has been difficult.

    Thank you so much for what you are doing. I am so grateful to have heard you on the radio. I am a customer for life.

  6. My daughter is autistic (high functioning) and suffers from chronic pain. She started on one 5mg lithium Orotate tablet a day and I cannot believe her social interaction is so much better, she’s even made a friend. She’s doing great on it and so is my husband who suffers from panic attacks and mood swings… Funnily enough I have noticed that he is not forgetting words or misnaming things around the house:) We have not had a row for over 2 weeks and we are all getting on so well. There have been no side effects at all.. my daughter is sleeping a lot better no nightmares and the voices in her head have all but gone, this is just on 5mg… I am very happy… but am concerned that I bought this over the counter and our GP is not aware, I don’t think he will be supportive but we’ll have to see when I tell him next week. He did not raise his eyebrows at 8,000iu of Vit D, so I don’t think he’ll have a clue anyway…. The nutritionist said to use 1/8th of a tablet…. and build up slowly… so at least she knew about it which is a good thing. I would like to know any research of long term use… My daughter is also on LDN and maintenance doses of vits etc as her levels are all in range now.

  7. Catherine reports amazing and encouraging results within 7 days of supplementing her children with Lithium Orotate. ADHD, Panic attacks, excessive outbursts of tears and or emotions, violent tantrums, physical violence…MUST READ STORY FOR PARENTS! You are a light to other parents Catherine, thank you so much sharing your story with us! (The Lithium Doctor)

    About a year and a half ago I was at my wits end with my 3-year-old (the third of my four, soon to be five children). He was so out of control that the baby would panic and start crying when he entered the room. I was ready to take him to a psychiatrist and put him on prescriptions, but the waiting list just to have him assessed was over a year long. A friend recommended lithium orotate for my husband, who is bipolar, and she mentioned that she gave it to her children as well as her husband. After researching it on the internet, I decided to give it a try. Within a week there was a night and day difference for my son (and my husband, too). He went from having 3-4 bad days a week to one or two normal tantrums a week. When he had the bad days, they were very bad and they were ALL day. I couldn’t let him be in the same room with his siblings, for their safety. One day that sticks out in my head, the baby had bruises on her forehead in various stages of healing, my 7-year-old had a goose egg on his forehead the size of a large marble, and I had a fat lip. He is 4 1/2 years old now, and he is such a sweet child. He can play nicely with other children, he is compassionate towards them, and he rarely hits anymore. I want to stress that the change took place in a week (although it took a few months before the baby stopped panicking when he entered the room) and has been maintained for the past year and a half, with the exception of a week when we ran out of the lithium and his behavior reverted right back to what it had been. After the success we had with my toddler, we also put my 7-year-old on it. His symptoms weren’t nearly as dramatic, but about 1 day a week he would seem depressed. He didn’t want to do anything and he cried over nothing. Those melancholy days ended after we put him on lithium. Then we decided to try it with our 6-year-old daughter after reading that it could be effective with ADD. I don’t think her attention span is up to “normal” for her age, but it’s definitely improved. I just wish that it was easier to find dosage information, especially for children. We’ve done the best we could trying to calculate how much the maximum dose of elemental lithium is so we don’t go over, but we get a lot of conflicting information online.

  8. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!

    After listening to you on The Power Hour I bought Lithium Orotate for my wife, who has been on Zoloft for the last 15 years, is back to her original self.

    Over the years on Zoloft she became more and more irritable and started drinking heavily. She would drink 2-3 bottles of wine a night, then wake with no headache and a 6pm she would start all over again. While drinking she was highly irritable, and would find any reason in the world to start an argument with me.

    After one week on just one pill per day she has made a 200% change. Everyone has noticed.

  9. Hi. I am a 37 year old. Fifteen years ago I was diagnosed with Aspbergers syndrome. My brain scan revealed I used only a very small portion of my brain which I then “overloaded” to the point where I could look and act like everyone else. The doctor said I was the second worse case of Aspbergers he had ever seen. Since I’ve been using Lithium I’ve gained the ability to understand people when they speak to me. I’m also happier, and things feel more real. I have hope. I finally have hope. Thank you so much.

    • Hi Phil. I can relate to your story, although I do not know if I have Aspbergers syndrome. I do, however, find myself acting like others in what they say or do, or how they look, and even repeat what they say, even if they aren’t talking to me. I just started taking Lithium, and I feel like I can interact with others in this world easier. It just…comes easier. My speech flows better, it’s more fluid. I do get some weird stomach issues from the Orotate. This is only my second day on it, but I have had bad gastritis for two years. I take a PPI, and it causes some mental side effects, like anxiety, paranoia, and depression. I took Lithium Carbonate about 7 years ago, and swallowed my pills with malt liquor 40’s. Needless to say, I probably couldn’t tell if it was helping or not. Now, 7 years later, at 27 years old, I am clean, sober, but still have lingering anxiety, which is what brought me here. I tried the carbonate, but I got muscle weakness, and a dumbed-down feeling. With the Orotate, the side effects are reduced, my constant restlessness has subsided, my thought processes have slowed down, enabling me to think clearer, and observe before reacting. It really has done the trick for me, and I hope it continues. I have to thank God for allowing me to get through my early and mid twenties, which were full of hard drugs, alcohol, prescription medications, anger, rage, sadness, loss of a significant other. Most of that probably stems from my inability to get over my mothers suicide when I was ten. She stabbed herself in the heart, and when I drank, I always thought about it, and got mad over it. I’ve been through it. Now, I feel born again. I can let go. I can eat that chip on my shoulder. I can move forward, with clarity, and a stronger rationale and firm values. Good luck to all who suffer from Bi Polar, childhood trauma, and substance abuse issues. Been there, done that, moving on, sturdy and strong!

  10. I have been on LO 2-3 pills a day for past 2 weeks for anxiety /depression/adhd/insomnia. (I am 45 yo female) It is helping. Beware taking it with caffeine, which can prevent it from working. I have had what I think may be severe withdrawl effects by having coffee with it: severe panic/depression attacks (severe rebound depression can happen when going off lithium). they seem to subside when I pop another LO pill. Also have had some minor side effects: loss of libido, brain fog, dry mouth. these are supposed to subside with continued treatment. Compared to SSRI which make you feel numb, this is better.

  11. I was happy to find this forum as I just started LO three days ago. Mine is in a mineral formula by John Gray. It is called super minerals for women. Each capsule has 4.5 mg of elemental lithium orotate along with a few other minerals. Anyway I have been depressed for two years since recovering from a serious illness which left me with some chronic physical conditions. I developed moderate depression, worse in the a.m. hours. I could not get out of bed even after 12 hours sleep. I. Was not interested in life and wanted to sleep. I was told it was chronic fatigue syndrome. After a year I realized I was depressed. I have tried nutrition, fasting, raw food diets..herbs. st. John’s wort worked but had some side effects. I saw John Gray videos on you tube and ordered bis minerals with the lithium O. My God. After 2 days I flew out of bed at 7 a.m. after only 7 hrs. I am so energetic and happy. I just hope it lasts. I will keep you posted. I just hope I can use it long term. I take only half dosage which is about 2.5 mg per day in the morning on an empty stomach. I am very hypersensitive so small doses of things work best for me. This stuff is a miracle to me. I feel like my old self. I believe lithium is an essential mineral that is missing in our soils today and therefore missing in our diets. Everyone should supplement….the world would be a happier place with happier people!!!

  13. Thanks to an article on the benefits of lithium orotate I was transformed from a guilt ridden emotionally crippled wreck who avoided any and all social contact into the kind of happy strong person that I used to be 15 years earlier.

    After over a decade of living with a wife with severe depression our marriage nearly collapsed. Every day was a struggle to find things to distract her and perhaps fend off another of her attacks of depression. Eventually I told her she needed to get help or it was over. She did, but the help she got was anti-depressants. She changed over night, and things settled down but after five years of being medicated she became an emotional zombie. Eventually a workmate offered me the affection I’d been deprived of at home, and I fell in love. She left her husband and took her kids, while I left my wife.

    The break up lasted less than a week when my new “love” told me in no uncertain terms that there was every chance she would cheat on me. My world fell apart. I felt like a fool and chose to return to my wife and keep caring for her as best I could. But it was me that needed to be cared for.

    I had a complete emotional breakdown. The guilt for breaking my wife’s heart, of splitting up my workmate’s marriage and of taking two children away from their father crippled me. I clung to my wife like a child clings to a teddy bear. I couldn’t sleep and would lay awake all night tormented by guilt and soaking my pillow with tears. I couldn’t talk to or relate to other people. I was in a deep dark pit and sinking deeper every day. But even with all that piled on top of me I would not turn to anti-depressants because I had seen what they had done to my wife.

    The I decided to drag myself out of the pit. I stopped eating sugar and processed foods. I began taking mineral supplements and going for long works and working out. I lost 14 kilos and felt fitter Than I’d ever been but the guilt persisted. I couldn’t shake my depression.

    Then I found an article on lithium orotate. I ordered it immediately and started on 5mg a day and felt an immediate improvement. I could sleep again and although the memories of what had happened were all still there they did not cripple me with guilt. I quickly moved o to 125mg a day and I’m a changed person. I feel like I can handle everything. I’m socializing with people in my new job and feel happier than at any time in my whole 42 years of life.

    Everyone needs this mineral. It is so important to spread the word.

  14. Hi I take either lithium orotate or lithium aspartate 10mg once a day. I have taken for the last three years. I started at 5mg but increased to 10 last spring. I also take 150 mg of zoloft for generalized anxiety. The Zoloft has worked but occasionally I will still slip into severe anxiety. Since I have started the lithium orotate/aspartate the anxiety episodes have decreased. Once they do happen they are more manageable. Instead of the severe anxiety that would interupt my life for a couple of weeks the orotate has reduced those severe attacks to minor episodes that are manageable. So I take the zoloft with the orotate/aspartate and seem happy with this. I never did tell the doctor but my test for kidney functions, thyroid and others have all come back as ‘normal’

  15. Hi my name is Marlene. I have bipolar 2. I have been taken lithium prostate 5 mg once daily for the past week. It worked immediately on stopping my angry moods and ups/downs with moods swings. It does irritate stomach a bit but I do have heard. I will take a pip. I will try eating first then taking the lithium to see if that will help it.

  16. I have personally witnessed significant improvement to miraculous improvements in people with bipolar disorder who take lithium orotate. I have spoken to 4 psychiatrists who use it (semi-secretly) and they use 5 dosages of 240 mg.s when a client is symptomatic. They keep taking one dosage away until they get to a maintenance dose of 240 mg. twice a day at opposite ends of the day. It helps people with BiPD to sleep better, but not necessarily longer, so a low dosage of Seroquel would probably be necessary to catch up on sleep. The “depression” from BiPD is often actually fatigue. Fatigue sets in when a person has not slept enough for long periods of time. The body threshold for activity gets lowered to adapt, and then it takes a good 6 – 8 weeks to get the body back to normal. By the same token the prefrontal cortex usually goes offline (in part or completely during and after mania for 6 – 8 weeks) and takes that long to come back online (insight, foresight, hindsight, bigger picture, context … basically the executive functions in the brain). Usually the first thing people say after taking lithium orotate is that they can think more clearly. After 6 – 8 weeks of Seroquel, a milder dose of a sleep medication can be given. Unfortunately, most people with BiPD suffer from sleep deprivation in some form or another because the BiPD interferes with the body/brain connection and they don’t “feel” the need for sleep, or their thoughts are racing so much, it keeps them awake.
    So then the maintenance for BiPD would be 240 mg. of lithium orotate and a sleep aid. None of this has been approved by the FDA and never will be because lithium orotate is a natural mineral and can’t be patented, and therefore is not financially feasible for a pharmaceutical company to spend the millions of dollars to take it to the FDA. That’s why the NIMH needs to run it through the FDA, or Bill Gates. The dosages I gave above are “consensus” from 4 psychiatrists, and therefore not scientific. Most doctors will not use a supplement that is not approved by the FDA, and therefore most supplements are not used by M.D.s. Until our system changes, this will always be the case (Naturopaths vs. M.D.s).
    Lithium orotate may not work for everyone, but in my (consensus) experience … it works for damn near everyone.
    ALWAYS check with the doctor before taking lithium orotate, since it is a salt and since it may be contraindicated with other medications you are taking. There are some drug stores that can also tell you if there is any contraindications. It would be nice to have a doctor that knew something about this mineral too. An overdose can cause tremors (which is typical in prescription lithium) but almost never for lithium orotate. An overdose can also cause your kidneys to act up and the urinary flow will be slower. That’s why it should be taken over the day, NEVER all at once. It’s like taking a teaspoon of salt in one sitting. Your kidneys don’t like that. Taking a partial teaspoon of salt five times a day will usually not get your kidneys upset.

    In my experience of training over 30,000 mental health professionals in BiPD, I have found that natural remedies, in general, are not strong enough to treat bipolar disorder … except lithium orotate. To be safe, I would only recommend it for mild to moderate Bipolar II.
