I tried memantine for the first time last week. The largest dose I used in a single day so far has been 7.5 mg. No positive effect yet. I used it 5 days in a row at 5 mg. About 1 hour after ingestion, I usely experience a kind of headache (pressure around my temples). It lasts only a minute. I experience this issue even when using only 2.5 mg. I decided to rest the experiment because I had to stop using Wellbutrin (I didn't want to risk any interactions) and I really need Wellbutrin. I might try again combined with wellbutrin at a very low dose and see how I do.

Damn! I didn't know that! I tried it because it is investigated for ADHD and some reports mood improvement on it. I was also interested in preventing tolerance from medications such as dexedrine.

Mode of action for memantine.

Looks very effective (as a nootropic) only if you have Alzheimer's or a lot of beta amyloid plaque built up.

I ordered memantine from drugdelivery.ca. The pharmacy I ordered from is located in India. The price is much lower then what others pharmacy offer. Since the side effects match what people report, it look genuine.

There are abstracts with memantine IMPROVING memory as well. Surely very dose-dependent and dependent on the individual. There's no quesiton that high-dose NMDA antagonism seriously impairs memory (as anyone who has taken ketamine or DXM recreationally can tell you), but buffering CA++ at lower degrees may be helpful in many ways.
