I've usedand Now dopa macuna and get a noticable increase in libido and a mild increase in overall well being. I've always stacked it with DAA so I'm not sure how it would do on its own. Not trying to thread jack but does anyone know the half life for it. I've read 2-3hrs and 6hrs.

The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

BELIEVE ME,I KNOW>
So you`re spot on,it`s just a substitute.
As for levodopa....
I keep reading how some Parkinson`s patients develop schizo after years on levodopa.
I wouldn`t rule it un-harmful.
It`s practically a med,obtainable as supplement.
Guess I`m just gonna have to order a bottle and see for myslef.
One bottle shouldn`t **** my brain up.
I`m really liking the libido part everyone keeps mentioning.

This is what wiki says about l-dopa sides:
The side effects of L-DOPA may include, but not limited to:
Hypotension, especially if the dosage is too high
Arrhythmias, although these are uncommon
Nausea, which is often reduced by taking the drug with food, although protein interferes with drug absorption
Disturbed respiration, which is not always harmful, and can actually benefit patients with upper airway obstruction
Disorientation and confusion
Extreme emotional states, particularly anxiety, but also excessive libido
Vivid dreams and/or insomnia
Auditory and/or visual hallucinations
Effects on learning; there is some evidence that it improves working memory, while impairing other complex functions
Somnolence and narcolepsy
A condition similar to stimulant psychosis
Although there are many adverse effects associated with L-DOPA, in particular psychiatric ones, it has fewer than other antiparkinsonian agents, such as anticholinergics and dopamine receptor agonists.
More serious are the effects of chronic levodopa administration in the treatment of Parkinson disease, which include:
End-of-dose deterioration of function
Freezing during movement
Dose failure (drug resistance)
Dyskinesia at peak dose (levodopa-induced dyskinesia)
Possible serotonin depletion: Recent studies have demonstrated that use of L-DOPA without simultaneously giving proper levels of serotonin precursors depletes serotonin
Possible dopamine dysregulation: The long-term use of L-DOPA in Parkinson's Disease has been linked to the so-called dopamine dysregulation syndrome
It is after all,wiki,but nevertheless...
A powdered preparation of cowhage called HP-200 seems to be safe for most people. The most common side effects include nausea and a sensation of abdominal bloating. Less common side effects include vomiting, abnormal body movements, and insomnia.
Side effects of other cowhage preparations include headache, pounding heartbeat, and symptoms of psychosis including confusion, agitation, hallucinations, and delusions.
The hair of the cowhage bean pod is a strong irritant and can cause severe itching, burning, and swelling if it is taken by mouth or applied to the skin.

So does taking L-Dopa actually make people sleepy? If so, why is this? Is it not a good idea to take an L-Dopa supplement in the morning and drive to school, work, etc.?

I had bloods done while taking IGF-2 and my SHBG was elevated and IGF-1 and free test was down. I get bloods often due to anti-aging endo I see, but I do not take test or hgh . . . yet, but will when my natural levels decline. 45 now and IGF-1 is generally in 290+ range and TTest around 590 to 600. My IGF-1 dropped to like 200 and my SHBG almost double after taking IGF-2. Could be other factors at play, could be just my body. I posted results on App Nut section back when bloods came back.
