Lithium orotate treatment should be about 5 mg to 20 mg per day. Some recommend starting with 5 mg and then increasing to 20 mg. But maybe 5 mg is enough? Treatment with lithium orotate is likely to avoid all the negative side effects that come with traditional lithium treatment ranging between 300 mg, 600 mg or 1200 mg per day.
