Hey all, I'm new here. I've been reading up on nootropics and "smart drugs" a lot lately, and have put together a combination that seems to be working nicely. I'm always looking to improve myself and any tips on this would be great.
What I'm taking:
Omega 3 FISH OIL (4000mg 2x/day)
SAN Dr. Feel Good Multivitamin/Mineral
acetyl l-carnetine (1000-1500mg 1-3x/day)
Choline (500mg 2x/day w/ piracetam) additional 500mg in multi-vitamin, total 1500mg
melatonin (2.5mg before bed)
Ashwagandha (5-600mg 2x/day, at night and in the morning)
Piracetam (2 tsp 2x/day) about 9g total
I'm going to add sulbutiamine to this and see how that works. Since I've started this (about a week ago) I've noticed improved mood, concentration and memory recall. No sleep disturbances or gastrointestional problems, but nothing spectacular yet. I'm a firm believer that supplementation has to go hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle, so I exervise regularly (aerobic and anerobic), eat healthy and keep my mind and body active. I suffer from lifelong depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and HPPD and am seeking alternatives to traditional medication which i've been largely un-responsive to.
