Hello Longecity. greetings from Denmark! 

 

I would love some feedback on this very basic stack for general health and recovering from multiple years of daily cannabis use, non-stop munchies, and occasional use of other drugs that lead me to having a strange panic attack on cocaine about 5 month ago.

 

Ever since that "panic attack" i have been feeling odd, anxious, and i have been getting weird "waves of depression" in the evening. My sleep is also strange with very vivid dreams. I couldn't smoke weed afterwards as that would make it worse. After being off weed for 2 month i have a relapse and began smoking again, even though it made me slightly paranoid every time and didn't do much good for me. I found the strength to quit again and have now been off it for around 2 month. I think i have triggered some underlying anxiety and depression. Although i don't think neither supplements or medications will cure anything i figured it couldn't harm to try supplementing basic nutrients in appropriate doses 

 

I am planning on including the following supplements:

 

1. Life extensions 2-per-day Multivitamin (I will only be eating one a day, so half the dosage) 

 

2. Magnesium Glycinate - 200 mg morning, 200 mg evening. 

 

3. Cod liver oil 800 mg - 1g once a day.

 

4. Additional 200 mg of Vitamin C. 

 

5. Lithium Orotate 5 mg per day. 

 

6. Magnesium B12 500 mcg once daily. 

 

 

I do not see the LEF multivitamin containing K-vitamins, would there be any point in adding that? I am also considering adding some Zinc and calcium (calcium as i do not tolerate lactate and generally do not get much through diet) What dosages should i be looking at here? 

 

Thank you for a great forum with some great information i hope you can help me out here. I hope its OK that i mention the brand of the multivitamin in this section. 

 

Cheers

Andy

You can add some NAC into the mix.
See article below for glutamatergic system involvement in addiction - i.e. years of marijuana use

Hello. I am reading through the article you linked me, and i noticed that this particular study they are reffering to here: "Another RCT is assessing the effects of NAC on cannabis withdrawal (NCT01439828)" was due to completion back in 2012, but no research results has been published, am i missing something or do you know where i can find this study? 

 

I also noticed that one of their exclusion criteria to participate in the study was lactose intolerance (Which i have) but i am guessing that is in regards to the tablets orally given in the study? 

 

I did look up some of the studies performed on other drugs like nicotine and pathological gambling which did have some results. Unfortunately my limited capabilities in statistics and English being my second language i did not fully understand the numbers/results - i will definitely look further into this.

The best assessment is seeing the results on yourself. Don't get bugged down by the details from the studies.

NAC is a safe supplement that you can try anytime.

You could consider adding NAC and ALA.  

 

I always tend to like creatine which is said to work for cognitive function.  

 

Some folate to go with the B-12 might be an idea, preferably something like methylfolate rather than folic acid.

One alternative ... substitute the Two-Per-Day with the LEF Life Extension Mix plus the Health Booster ... also at half dose (one day’s worth spread out over two). You then wouldn’t need to add the cod liver oil, magnesium, B12, K, extra C, calcium and NAC, since it would cover all that.

I’d just add fish oil or EPA/DHA for your omega 3’s.

You can also add Iqooster. It’s a great product for the brain, improves memory and attention.
