Although the usual dosage of lithium salts for acute episodes in children has not been established, lithium carbonate dosages of 15–20 mg/kg (about 0.4–0.5 mEq/kg) daily or equivalent lithium citrate dosages have been given in 2 or 3 divided doses to children 11 years of age or younger. However, the usual adult dosage should not be exceeded. When lithium salts are used in children, dosage should be adjusted according to serum lithium concentrations, patient tolerance, and clinical response. Dosages for children 12 years of age and older usually are the same of those of adults.
