    Not a fan of coffee (or really anything with caffeine) but have read good things about bulletproof coffee.
    I swear by it - I just feel like I have laser-like focus, energy through the roof and a mental clarity I've never experienced before.

    could it really be this simple, a trite matter of ppl's refusal to CHANGE their dietary discourse, that brings about the mass majority of issues that everyone wants to use SUPPLEMENTS to correct?

    hmmm..enquiring minds want to know
    Op's situation sounds more than a diet related issue though. Unless he is eating zero fats.

    Absolutely, but while looking at supplements it's a good time and place to go back and reassess the quality of what you're putting in your mouth.

    And EAT MORE FATS! :P

    Do you know of anything that can be taken with galantamine to offset the tired feeling it seems to cause (even after just a few days at 8 mg per day)? Preferably little to no caffeine because it makes me jittery and anxious. I'm assuming I should avoid anything with choline? Would alcar as the base of a stack be okay? Another cheap/basic option I'm considering is just l-theanine and caffeine (figured the theanine would offset the negative effects of the caffeine).

    I was making a general generic statement, that encompasses a great majority of "supplement users" and all kinds of issues, not necessarily specifically OP situation and exact issue

    is that .2 = 1/5th of 1 cent, or are you really trying to say .02 which would be more conducive of the saying "2 cents"?
    .2 of a cent would seem to be fairly minute

    enquiring minds wish to know the answer to this one as well

    I would say just try it out first and see how it goes. Choline isn't necessarily going to make you tired either, depends on your dosage. ALCAR is certainly fine, and you can definitely combine theanine and caffeine, caffeine is one of the most effective ingredients out there. Just low dose the caffeine.

    I'm beginning to think that galantamine might not be for me. I've been taking it for about a week at just 8 mg per day and I've never been so tired. I'm actually falling asleep in the middle of the day. That never happens. Do you or anyone else know if this is a common side effect or if it might decrease with time?

    Maybe try some ALCAR but maybe it would be best to see what you doctor says.

    Please ignore my previous question. My wife has asked that I stop using the galantamine. Besides being tired all day, apparently I've also been in a very poor mood while taking it (she said I've been very short tempered). Just in case both are somehow related to me taking galantamine (not saying it is), I'm going to stop taking it.

    So, until I can get in to see a doctor, I might just take focus xt since I'm starting to think some of my memory issues are just due to my inability to stay focused on anything (my mind often wanders a lot). Started to think this might be part of the problem because even after just a week I noticed my ability to focus on things improving and as a result I was rememering everday details (like why I walked into a room) better.

    Sorry to hear that, but yeah, you're better off cutting it out and hoping for the best. Attention (which is focus) is one of the most important aspects of memory and memory consolidation, so you are on the right track. I hope the Focus XT helps you out. Let us know what your doctor says.

  15. Anyone know of a good source for purchasing galantamine? Recently had some problems with purchases through SP and need a new source.

  16. What do you guys think of TULIP by falco? Anyone tried this out?

    I am studying for my MCAT, Anyone know any good stacks to get to study for that. I have a really hard time with short term and long term memory. I am currently on CILTEP but thats not really having a big noticeable effect on me.

    Post a link to these profiles. Personally when I did my MCATs years ago, I did Focus XT+ ALCAR.

  18. How good did Focusxt help you on the mcat? What benefits did it give you and how long till you got those benefits? I'm having lots of difficulty with the verbal reasoning. Would that help with that portion? A lot of the mcat deals with short term reasoning especially the verbal and bio sections, so is that something that would help with short term and working memory?

  19. I totally forgot about this memory thread
    is that a bad thing?

    I replied to you in the other thread

  21. I just came across this old thread I started while lurking the forums. I had forgotten all about it (the irony). I figured I'd provide an update. I did end up seeing a psychiatrist for my memory issues. It took many months before I could finally see someone thanks to my annoying health insurance plan. He felt they were probably due to the many years of various SSRI use. He explained how he's now finding more and more cases similar to mine occuring with people that have used SSRI's longterm and thinks it may in part be due to many of them being anticholinergenic. With his oversite, I've recently started taking a supplement which includes alcar, nalt, cdp choline, dmae and theanine. We're going to start slow with over the counter supplements (again, due to my crappy insurance) and see if the combination of ingredients will help with the memory issues. If not, we'll look into something stronger or prescription strength.
