Lithium treatment reduces rat brain inositol levels. In 9 patients treated with lithium 1200 mg per day, no reduction in cerebrospinal fluid inositol levels was detected. The results may be due to the short time period, the low dosage of lithium, or the fact that brain inositol levels are much higher than cerebrospinal fluid levels and may not be reflected in cerebrospinal fluid levels.
