I stopped my nootropic stack and started over. Have had problems with gut or kidney on right side, not sure what it is, but I took stool samples with my doctor, plus bloodwork. Haven’t heard anything yet.
Cat’s claw 1000mg 2-3 times daily
Vitamin D 4000iu
Vitamin C 1000mg
Also I’m taking some supplements for gut/kidneys, but they are not notroopics.
I’m excited about sam-e since it clearly boosts neurotransmitters. Have more feeling and more connected and alert to suroundings, but a bit worried it may make me manic. Only used it for 2 days so will see over time.
Next week I will have a try at transitioning to seroquel with cross taper. But it will be a long process to taper of the zyprexa. It will probably take close to a year I’m figuring, if I am sucsessful. If I can sleep I will make it.
Brahmi 500mg of a 36:1 extract 50% bacosides, ginseng 1000mg 10% active ingredient, ginkgo 180mg of a 65:1 6% terpenes extract. Idk about tulsi I don’t take it. Lions mane I read its neuroprotective, good for cognition, and good for immune system. Rhodiola is antistress.
Latuda mg 16.34>15.60mg
Magnesium glycinate ~600mg
GABA ~700mg (3 weeks on 1 week off)
Fish Oil 5g
NALT & DL-Phenylalanine ~133/333mg (3 on 4 off)
Black tea (Caffeine) 20mg?
Good results on this evolution of the stack.
Cycling on and off Caffeine/NALT/Ritalin depending on sleep and sedation. It picks up my mood for days and after I reverse to baseline. I’m finding it easier to balance more adhoc as you have better control that way. The mood arc has so many variables it’s a hit hard to leave as a set and forget thing
Starting to think about the next rotation. I will drop the p5p, I’m going to use Grape seed extract and reduce the high dose Vitamin C. Zinc goes up. And I back off the Curcumin. Guanfacine goes back to night. Taper continues down 0.8mg
