I don't know the serum level for me but I weigh 180 and take 1200 mg a day. It's my miracle drug cuz after I'm on it for 2 weeks it blocks about 90% of them. The ones that break thru are 6's to 8's...rarely any higher and oxygen knocks them out. Again, I don't know what your husband weighs but if the doctor doesn't mind weekly blood tests for a little while it might be worth a try to kick up the dosage a little bit. Make sure you both get the list of toxic indicators to watch for with lithium overdosing. Good luck!!!
