child. The LD50 dose is 525 mg for every kilogram of your body weight.

But in English/American units, this turns into about 240 mg for every

pound of your body weight. If you are over 100 pounds in weight, then

you would need over 24000 mg of lithium carbonate to be at the LD50

dose. Incase you don't know, "LD50" means the amount of toxic

substance required for you have a 50/50 chance of being killed."

Looks like that substance would take a zillion pills for you to

overdose on it. You would need to ingest something like 500 pills.

That's crazy dude.

"The amount you said is not toxic for an adult, or likely even for a

Theres a typo - I meant to type 450mg not 45mg!

...so considering I have tablets and each tablet is 450mg and I weigh

70kg how many tablets do I swallow?

considering 525mg = 1 kg

I am not good at maths (please show working out)!

Thanks supernatural

At least 82 pills / tablets.

70 (kg) * 525 (mg) = 36750 mg - that would be the amount

of your lithium carbonate needed for 70 kg person to OD

36750 (mg) / (divided by) 450 (mg) = 81,66666 - that's the

number of pills you would need.

Thanks blackend, you are good at maths!

Just another maths questioon then:

I read that another lethal dose is 15 pounds per 300mg.

I work in kilograms so 1kg = 2.20 pounds.

What is the lethal dose if I use this calculation (my weight is 70kg

and I have 450mg per tablet).

I worked out I would only need 7 tablets but judging from what you

said I am definitely not doing it properly.

will prove my calculations wrong, you never know.

I hope someone else checks them soon.

But let's see...

Yes, the result is only 7 tablets, so your calculations are right. But

I think that lethal dose of 300 mg per 15 pounds must be wrong. I

don't believe that 7 tablets of that stuff is enough to overdose and

die.

Hi Blackend,

Yes you are good at Maths!

I heard that the theraphetic dose is extremely close to the lethal

dose. Thats why I had to get my blood checked the first two days and

then the following week and week after. Then you get it checked once

every 3 months. I read that twice the recommended dose can kill.

Does anyone know the LD50 for lithium carbonate. I have lithium

carbonate pills at 45mg per pill.

How many pills will I need for acute toxicity/ lethal dose?

cheers

the LD50 dose:

"LD50 means the amount of toxic substance required for you have a

50/50 chance of being killed."

So, if I am not mistaken, by taking 82 pills you get 50% chance of

dying.

Well, then...I guess the number of tablets needed for a certain death

would be at least 160-170 ?

bear in mind the control group will be rats or dogs - they

unfortunately don't conduct these tests on humans (most awesome game

Hi Avalance,

I guess it is a game of russian roulette.

For me (and I am only being 100% honest) I don't want to die but I

don't want to live either - so playing russian roulette with my life

(and mine only) suits me fine. I am a bit philosophical about it - if

I survive then it was meant to be. I think I will go with the 7 and I

can make it look like an accident...someone might think I forgot to

take meds and took them twice.
