Abstract

The nomogram developed by Cooper and associates used to predict the dose of lithium carbonate (Li +) which is needed to attain therapeutic Li + concentrations has, in general, proven to be accurate and clinically useful. However, there may be some patients in whom the pharmacokinetic disposition of Li + varies sufficiently so that accurate dosage predictions cannot be made; a report of one such patient is given.
