    I strongly suspect that the true active ingredient in this medicine is the number six isotope of lithium, which is only 6.76% of the whole lithium in nature.

    It is as effective as large doses of the whole lithium without the bad side effects. Biology is sensitive to isotopes, e.g. Heavy hydrogen is enriched in certain plants. A generic substitute has not become available, suggesting that the organic compound documented in it is not active.
    The presence or absence of lithium six in it could be easily determined by spark source mass spectroscopy.

    There is no generic for it because its patent hasn't expired.

    The patent expires in 2011, you'll see generics around 2012-2013

    There is no reason to suspect different isotopes of lithium to have a different effect on the human brain, to be blunt you've pulled this out of your ass.
