thanks, monarchcat. reading the beginning of your post, i was thinking just that -- perhaps we should have started much lower.

we too cannot do B12 methylcobalamin bc of genetic issues. thanks!

what is low for lithium? We have caps and, I guess, I can give him half of it. less than that would be very hard to measure.

It seems as though Yasko advocates for very low dose when possible, though some need higher doses, especially at first. I think ideally aiming for under 5mg of elemental lithium per day (and maybe very low, like 2mg or less for long term?). She has lots of info in the webisode in the link above (I finally watched it and it's really interesting!). The tablets I have are 120mg, which contain 4.8mg elemental lithium. We are doing 1 tablet a day right now, but I think I'll adjust that down in a few months, depending on lab results, though. Yasko definitely says to work with a doctor and check levels often.
