    What is your dosing on the three u listed above and how long did it take for you to feel the effects ??? The way you described feeling without the choline on ALCAR is very similar to how I describe it.

    It's too bad that doctors don't know more about Aniracetam because I think it would help so many people rather than loading them up on prescriptions.

    I do about 1.6 grams of choline citrate and 1.5g Alcar with 1g Aniracetam twice daily spaced about 8 hours apart. I'm not sure of the MOA of those prescriptions but it may be that they reduce choline levels in the brain, so you may need more. Play around with the dosages of Alcar and Choline if you don't get the right effects. Lately I've added Piracetam back in with the stack and feel slightly better but I wouldn't worry about that in your stack.

    I know this is kind of a bump out of no where, but I ran ALCAR for about 3 months. I have been off of it for a couple months and I have a noticeable difference in mental clarity and recall. I also was supplementing NA-R-ALA. I don't know if it is a boost in Acetyl-Choline levels or the neuroprotective properties, but I can attest to what the original post.


    Bump for anyone who hasn't seen this thread, or anyone who isn't sure about giving ALCAR a try.

    ALCAR and I dont work well together, Ive tried it alone and with my current stack of Aniracetam(750mg) and akg/choline(700mg) twice daily. I felt out of the moment on both occasions, so I,m sticking with my current stack and really loving the effects. I,m curious why ALCAR has this effect on me.....

    I'm the same way...ALCAR is not ideal for me. I like some of the effects..energy etc, but I start feeling edgy after a few days of use and then insomnia kicks in. Its a shame because it has so many great properties.

    That is how I plan on taking it, too. Do I need to take choline with it? If yes, how much? Can I take it for 2/3 months without any other antioxidants?

    Have you guys tried Brain Candy? I have tried it (the caffeine version) and liked it. It seems like a pretty complete formula, but the label does not specify how much ALCAR is in there.

    Almost finished with my first SNS bottle of ALCAR dosed at 1g a day. I noticed marked benefits in mental clarity at that dose. I will bump to the 2g a day dose when the next bottle arrives to see the difference. I will also be picking up the new Caff free FocusXT when that hits the market.

    NOW has a formula that combines Choline and Inositol. Does it make sense to take ALCAR with Choline & Inositol?

    Thanks natty. I am also interested in what dose of choline is recommended for this purpose. A single egg has 125 mg I think. Or 25% dv. Not bad. I am sure the supplement is around 1-2g?

    Entirely user-dependent. Some doses will make users alert; others will make them sleepy. I like 2g choline citrate.

    I take 2g SNS Choline Citrate. 500mg of CDP-Choline or Alpha-GPC is fine too.

    Do you take it at the same time you take ALCAR? Does it matter? One of the reasons I ask is because on my Alpha-GPC bottle it says to take it 90 minutes prior to lifting (it is a liquid form of Alpha-GPC).

    On non-workout days, do you split the dose 250mg choline with 1g ALCAR (first half of the day), 250mg choline with 1g ALCAR (second half of the day)? Thanks!

    They mentioned earlier if you take at the same time it will polymerize. And they mention dosing times a few pages back as well.
