Study of methylphenidate & lithium in adults with ADHD
A recent lecture by a near brilliant PhD in biochemistry brought this topic to mind. This study found lithium as effective as methylphenidate (Ritalin) for ADHD. Keep in mind that, although lithium has some negative associations with it, safe forms requiring much lower dosages are currently available. Interestingly, although this article showed equal effectiveness, a PubMed search revealed no further or previous studies on lithium therapy and thousands on methylphenidate….Guess which one is patentable….?
