Lithium is an anti-psychotic medication. What made you think of using it to control E?
Actually, technically it’s a mood stabilizer more similar to anti-convulsants in that regard.
I’m using it to help control my seasonal depression (summer and winter). It had an unexpected result of drastically increasing the effectiveness of the AI’s I was using. Through which mechanism I have no idea.
I’m not sure if lithium is effecting the metabolism of the AI’s or it’s effect lies some where else.
Typical dosages are 900mg to 1500mg per day. For some reason I can only tolerate 150mg per day before I start getting side effects.
As Bill said, I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone else. It’s effect on me could be an anomaly.
When I brought it up on the Meso HRT board awhile back a member there mentioned in hindsight his estrogen levels were much lower when he was supplementing with lithium orotate.
He didn’t put two and two together until I mentioned it. He couldn’t understand why his estrogen levels were lower than normal at the time with the same AI dose.
