Anyone here use nootropics? Piracetam, gingko biloba, vinpocetine, vasopressin, oxiracetam, lutein, lecithin, L-huperizine A, sulbutiamine, selegiline? Something I didn't think of?

I use piracetam, gingko, lecithin, lutein and vinpocetine, anyone else?

I drink orange juice.

I'm certain that it has something mind-altering in there...

I have used piracetam for a while, but now I just use it after galatamine lucid dreaming experiments to keep my acetylcholine receptors good and sharp.

The only thing that I use a lot of that supposedly boosts brain power is fish oil. I take about 6 grams a day, mostly for mood and to prevent migraines.

What's galatamine? These experiments sound fascinating.

Wow that's a lot, but then I don't get migraines. That is why you take such a high dose right, migraines? Sorry if this is too personal, feel free to ignore that question.

Yes, I am curious about Galatamine as well, especially if it deals with Acetylcholine. Do say more! And don't be afraid to get technical, I don't mind. I use Gaba, it is a calmative and a glutamate modulator. I am using it kind of like weight training, getting the synaptic circuits to adjust themselves to a lower voltage so they have less resistance. Benadryl is also great for this. Oxybutynin is even better, if you can get it. If you want to grow some synapses, eat edamame and drink soy milk.

I had written an article for the OC newsletter several months back on my lucid dreaming experiments with galantamine, but since I don't think that is happening here is the link to a new thread with the article in it:

I found out a few months ago that I have that rare situation where I am fine with seafood (love it!), but allergic to fish oil. Looked it up to confirm my suspicions. Wow! I had a near death (or so I thought, haha!) experience with my first attempts at fish oil supplementation.

I had a few very profound experiences taking Piracetam. When it works, it works well. But it doesn't always work. It doesn't even usually work. I would love to get into to it but I don't want to encourage people to start taking drugs. I also think some secrets are worth keeping, for a variety of reasons.

Among other things, Piracetam (when it works) connects the so-called Left and Right hemispheres of the brain to a much higher degree than they are usually connected. When combined with the correct kinds of practices, Piracetam can be very useful and even downright mind-blowing. The higher powers inherent in Piracetam are not "activated" until the use of Piracetam is combined with particular kinds of practices. Unless Piracetam is combined with the correct kinds of practices its effects are not particularly noticeable and are more in line with the kinds of effects you can read about on the Internet.

Piracetam can also have interesting side effects like increasing intuition (which is related to the increased right-left brain connection it causes).
:confused: I am a Buddha. I dance. What more could you need to know? :confused:

I have Myoclonus as a side effect of my meds. Perhapse I could get a prescription for Piracetam. I take Gaba as well (I have to hide it from my doctor, as well as B vitamins) Gaba is a wise teacher, and Piracetam is a derivative of Gaba. I wonder how they would act together.

Really? My corpus callosum is hungry to try this out.

I've not been experimental with drugs in a while but the majority of these are things i've never tried. This thread is tempting me to plan some little adventures.
