Six normal volunteers completed the study following oral administration of conventional and later slow release preparation of lithium carbonate. Mean serum levels over 24 h were calculated. The average time required to reach maximum concentration in serum was 5 h in conventional form and 6 h in case of slow release form. The maximum concentration did not differ significantly. The bio-availability of the conventional form was 79.9% of the slow release form. The volume of distribution and metabolic clearance rates for both the forms were similar. Implications of these findings are discussed.
