I have been taking Alpha GPC for a little over a month now. I took about 1200mg for the first week, then about 650mg every night. I never noticed anything when I started, but I thought it would be a good idea to keep taking it. About two weeks ago I started "realizing" how much more verbal I was when around people. I was in a better, more optimistic mood for no good reason. At the end of the day I wasn't as overwhelmingly sleepy as normal.
Now I also take Adderall and have been taking it for 10 months now. Nothing else I can think of has changed. It actually reminds me of being on piracetam, except better... much better.
Piracetam no doubt helped me verbally. But I'm finding myself saying what needs to be said instead of being undesirably reserved, keeping quiet because of mind-numbing sleepiness and/or slurring words.
Also it's like social anxiety is suddenly disappearing. I'm not antisocial, but I normally have to force myself to greet others. For the last two weeks I have been casually going up and talking to people I normally avoided.
I suffer from narcolepsy, which is the root of most of these problems. I wasn't hoping for anything more than reduced daytime sleepiness and memory.
Adderall may be overshadowing any short-term memory/concentration benefits, but I have noticed some random memory flashbacks. Again, like piracetam. Although I think piracetam may win in that area.
I wasn't expecting any of these benefits, but is a very welcome improvement.
Has anyone else had similar effects from Alpha GPC?
