    A dose of 360 to 720 mg of rubidium chloride per day given for 60 days “showed a marked and rapid anti-depressive action” in 18 females and 2 males with major depression according to a 1993 study from Italy.

    Subjects Average Age: 55

    The patient’s average age was 55-years-old.

    Improvements in both Anxiety and Depression

    There was a gradual and significant improvement in both depression and anxiety.

    Adverse Effects: Diarrhea and Skin Rashes

    Slight adverse effects that were observed included diarrhea and skin rashes.

    Conclusion

    “Rubidium chloride showed a marked and rapid anti-depressive action which was particularly evident in relation to mood, anti-conservative ideas, work, occupational interests and psychomotory slowing-down,” the abstract notes.

    Note: I do not have a copy of the paper, which is in Italian, so I can only tell you what is in the abstract.
