This is Dr. David
I would not start to treat your poor memory and brain fog on your own with lithium orotate
I would see your GP doctor and get a neurological evaluation and brain MRI scan
you might benefit from other types of medications like aricept or namanda
lithium orotate has not been well studied combined with conventional medications.
there could be side effects and your GP doctor should know if you are taking them.
have you talked to your GP doctor about your poor memory symptoms and brain fog?
are you willing to get a brain scan?
