Elevated mood, improved concentration & memory.
Anyways. I barely feel the effects of the drugs with meals. I had to take 15mg with water on an empty stomach to feel anything off them.
Not worth trying IMO. Too expensive.
On a sidenote: People who sell nootropics should be able to take paypal as an alternative. I simply do not trust paying with a CC# to any nootropics distributor. Most sites I have visited (cognitive nutrition, bulk nutrition, relentless improve, et al) scream UNSAFE at me. That's not to say that I don't trust your products. I just don't know who handles your back end servers and databases
Deprenyl can effect mood and focus but not much impact in memory. L-Huperzine A is more effective for that. Deprenyl requires food to be best absorbed.
You can email them I know some of the suppliers you mentioned offer paypal by request.
That's good to know.
Yes. L-Huperzine I've noticed helps.
I've also felt irritable on deprenyl when taken with caffeine. (espresso cup).
That's not an uncommon occurrence when I'm on caffeine, but there's far less resistance when combined with deprenyl. However, on an empty stomach w/water, and at 30mg (x6 pills), deprenyl gives me a speedy twang. I had to try an attack dose just to prove it wasn't placebo.
The effects were that I felt confident in wanting to absorb new learning material, tackle new things that otherwise would feel too big to take on, or too tedious. But I didn't feel any other major cognitive benefit. I just felt in a better mood to do things.
I've also been gradually getting off ssris, paroxetine to be precise. Cut down to about 20mg per week (x2 pills), from 10mg daily a year ago. And I've noticed deprenyl is helping inhibit the brain zaps I get from paroxetine withdrawal. I've gone down to a single 10mg dose a week for two weeks now. So far so good. Note that I'm not a long time paroxetine user. I only used it for a year.
Ideally I'd like to eventually get off caffeine as well. The only problem is that I tend to stammer a lot if I don't take my cup of coffee in the morning. I tried that for a week or two and it turned out a bit of a catch-22. I felt less anxious, less irritable. But my productivity went down by half. Poor communication overall as well. The crave for caffeine in the morning made me binge on snacks too. That's one reason why I'm turning to nootropics as an alternative.
If you have any pearls of wisdom on how to counteract caffeine withdrawal with some nootropic I'd be all ears.
