I feel this needs to be posted - Me, My Brain, and ALCAR

I'm taking my Concealed Carry Weapons course this Saturday - it seems like I've found a suitable excuse to use Focus XT during the summertime.

I guess ALCAR is not for me, I have been taking 500 to 1000mgs in the morning on and empty stomach for about two weeks and I get a dull headache and kinda feel not really in the moment, in that makes sense. I also added some Spark energy drink that has some Choline in it and I would feel pretty good for around two hours or so and then the weird feeling would come back and last all day. I had high hopes for this to give me more mental clarity most people have talked about, I take Paxil and Klonipin daily. I know some have posted about success with this while on SSRIs, not sure if the Klonipin would have any interactions with the ALCAR......

Good lord, klonipin and paxil. After seeing people I know basically turned into zombies on that crap, I can't believe how easily it is distributed. I am thinking that alcar is not your problem.

What's in your life that could cause the anxiety and panic attacks? I've had it a my whole life too (pretty bad) but I would never go on those drugs.
For anxiety I've gotten off prescription drugs and just use Aniracetam along with choline citrate and alcar for the most part. If it's bad or I get a panick attack I'll use phenibut, that stuff works wonders! Caffeine and other stimulants seem to make my anxiety worse some days so I try to avoid it if I'm having a bad day, so if you can then wait for the caffeine free version of FXT.
That feeling you got from the Alcar sounds just like what I get if I don't take enough choline with my Aniracetam and Alcar, very dull minded and hard to function properly.
Alcar is neuroprotective, so if used correctly it can help keep your brain functioning as it should, and help combat the LONG list of side effects from the drugs. I know it's hard to imagine but having gone through detox from anxiety meds myself, (not those specifically) I highly recommend going a couple weeks without the meds and trying a combination of nootropics to combat the anxiety. I feel like a good Aniracetam protocol is much more effective for anxiety than my meds were.

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.

anybody ever see the cartoon with the little dog that just bounces around the bigger bulldog calling his name over and over in admiration?

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.

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.
