    Yes, I use ALCAR and take Paxil.

    Take ALCAR - it is GREAT.

    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.....

  3. 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?

  7. 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.

    Looks solid but that caffeine dose is brutal.

  9. I honestly feel Alcar had progressively made me more intelligent and articulate over the years.

    IMO its important to be at maxiumum choline levels as the stimulants are acting

    What choline dose would you suggest per day?

    How much choline would you recommend? Is it better to take ALCAR with choline or with Alpha GPC?

  16. 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.

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

  18. 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.

    I'm not big on inositol.

    Is that choline dose every day?

    Yup

  22. Thx! What are your thoughts on subbing this with taking caff free FocusXT every day?

    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.
