    Studying/Focus Stack


    I've (finally) reached a point in school where I'm having trouble with the material and am, for the first time in my life, having to really put forth solid effort to keep my GPA where I'd like (minimum of 3.5). I'm a very ADD-like person and can rarely, if ever, sit and do only 1 thing at a time. I've been toying with some stacks and it's been a bit since there's been a good thread on this topic. I figured it would be a good idea to get one rolling again, especially since it's almost mid-term time.

    Currently using:
    1 piece ThermoGum
    400mg Sulbutiamine
    1 B-50 cap

    I really respond well to Geranium and Sulbutiamine and the gum allows me to freely play with the "dosage" a little more and helps me to get out some of my nervous energy.

    I usually like to use ALCAR and some Choline, but I'm out ATM and need to conserve on some fundage. What else would anyone suggest and/or currently using?

    Have you tried SNS Focus XT yet? I've been using 1 scoop along with 40-50 mgs geranium and this gives me one of the best feelings I've ever had with legal supplements.

    I just started using FocusXT and I agree. I have not tried it with Geranium though. I have some leftover IBE X-force and was thinking of taking these 2 together for a trial.

    The only drawback I have noticed from FocusXT is the initial effects have dropped off from first doses. I am now using it sporadically and the effects have come back. I will try the combo dose tomorrow!

    Exactly my reaction. The effects fall off pretty quickly, but it is a great product.

    When I used the OG Focus XT it worked great....... probably best to use sporadically though. Geranium only works on me at really high dosing, but then its like "It's 5AM??" lol

    I use Selegiline + PEA if i'm really am at crunch time.

    Otherwise I use tyrosine, piracetam, sulbutiamine, and occasionally rhodiola pretty much every day.

    I'm hoping the PEA doesn't tax my adrenals too much, i burnt mine out my first semester from too much coffee, among other things, and its really hard to be efficient when recovering from that.

    crush a 25mg Ephedrine tab on a glass surface, form a line, roll up a dollar.....

    I'm actually in the market for a study/focus party bag myself. I'm burnt out just half way into this semester.

    I used to use 900 mg combined of PEA/hordenine. I dislike geranium and am not really a caffeine person either. I was really hoping to get a stab at AMS lucidrol, but that isn't happening anytime soon now.

    Does anybody know if a supplement of Piracetam and AMS lucidrol might conflict in either way, if taken together?

    I'm interested to find out what is in fact the best for the money at helping retention, not so much "energy" and the effects of adderall, but moreso true brain power.

    I am definitely interested in finding something that helps with this. I have some Thermogum, just haven't gotten a chance to try it in the studying realm yet.... Also am looking to try the new clearshot concentrate...

    AX's Rampage or SX (But who knows at this point, I might as well be recommending Meth for all we know haha)

    I actually liked LG's E911 .. only tried it once since my buddy offered me one, but I'll definitely be picking some of my own up from nutra, it's pretty inexpensive.

    PEA + Selegiline IMO is pretty equivalent in effects to adderall. Its also cheaper and the duration is very much dose dependent. I can get an adderall high equivalent to ~50mg for a shorter duration and still be able to sleep two hours later. For true brain power Selegiline does a pretty good job by itself at 5mg-10mg split throughout the day. I honestly can't pimp selegiline enough, its a very versatile drug and is very synergistic with my nootropic regimen.

    read again, i'm not looking for adderall. I have been using 60mg of ginkgo biloba a day and really like it's effects thus far!

    This guy knows his stuff. It is a dangerous game to play with a MAOI however. Dose selegil. low.

    Second stack is good as well... oh you need to add choline otherwise pira. will not work.

    I've found a nice stack that I'm really digging:
    400mg sulbutiamine
    300mg chocamine
    4mg nicotine gum

    Great focus that lasts a solid 2-3 hours.

    Nicotine used to work bomb.......not so much anymore. Damn my tolerance. I become accustom to stacks and stims really easily. No matter how great they work at first the slowly start disappoint. Maybe when I am done with school I can take a little break from stimulants for a bit.

    Rodja, I am in the same exact boat that you are (school, studying, ADD).. But does anyone know of any studying/focus supps or stacks that are legit and not just a mix of stimulants? I try to steer clear of stimulants because they seem to make my heart act up a bit at night (palpitations).. that and I don't want to burn fat/lose weight hah.

    Herbs:
    Gingko biloba - safe bet.
    Bacopa - very respectible.
    Gotu kola - never tried it.

    Noots
    Piracetam/choline if you get the dosage right -> no tolerance, no toxicity but don't try against an exam.

    Yup, focus XT only has 200mg of caffein in it. Its not meant to really be a caffein based stim at all.

    Damnit, I didn't even see the caffeine at the bottom of the ingredients list.. and I ****ing ordered it.. boy do i feel like a dumbass. When I say that 'caffeine' affects my heart (night time arrhythmia), I mean like I only need a few cokes and it will start acting up. I was trying to avoid stimulants all together, ugh..

    200mg effects you that much? That is strange, sorry about that :/

    i actually just read a study in one of my psych books and it said that gingko has no effects on increasing blood flow to the brain. and subbd cause i would like to try some of these nootropic stacks. preferably light on stims since me and illicit stims have a bad history together
