Would you describe that as anxiety? Cause I have something similar and they pretty much don't have any OTC drugs for anxiety. Pramiracetam kind of helps for it, strangely enough. It has a mild sedative effect but speeds up thought processes and stuff. It's a weird drug. Meh, but if you can't get that yet, no use in talking about it. I'm probably going to talk to my doc about getting something for anxiety. If they have a negative effect on cognition, short or long term, I won't take it though. Meh.
This is going to be a long ass write up I think, so here we go, weeeee!
Make sure you do your own research. I'm not coverning NEARLY enough here. Look up side effects, and dosages, tolerance, and weather other stuff you are taking interacts with this stuff, or if they interact with eachother to form a synnergistic effect. Also look up how to take it. (With milk and food and shit, or with water, or on an empty stomach, or not, etc.)
1.) Omega 3's
Get some fish oil or flaxseed oil (spelling?), and use it daily. If you really want to feel some shit, try like four 1200mg tabs of fish oil lol. Beware, the first couple of times you take it it might make you burp up fish taste which is kind of disconcerting to some people, but flaxseed oil (spelling?) apparantly doesn't have that issue. I have 1200mg tab stuff and it hasa subtle effect on mood and shit. The book says it can improve visuals because your eyes have a lot of the stuff fish oil has, and it also says when you take like 3grams you can feel it pretty noticably. 1000mg is roughtly a gram. Also, this has been linked to rats being able to learn better after being on it for a while, and the membrain fluidity being better ans shit like that. Plus, omega 3's help cancel out, according to a new study, the negative cognitive effects high fructose corn syrup has on people. Although high fructose corn syrup is still bad for you even if you take omega 3's. Meh, it at least helps with the mental side of things. NOTE: Avoid taking aspirin or blood thiners since this stuff thins the blood a little. Don't worry about it unless you're taking like 10grams though. Shouldn't be a problem unless in high doeses, even if you are taking aspirin.
I haven't tried choline bitartrate by itself yet, but I doubt it'd do much for some reason. CDP-choline, according to the author of this book's experience, gave him more motivation and almost kept him from sleeping if he took it in the late afternoon. Choline is linked with memory, and all of that since it turns into choline in the brain, which is a very important neurotransmitter associated with memory and intelligence which most people are defficient in.
3.) Lecithin. -- Meh, author doesn't like this. Doesn't do anything. Supposed to help with parkinsons or something. Not worth it.
4.) Get a multivitamin with a lot of B vitamins in it, or get a B-complex-supplement that says B-100 on it. Specifically, make sure it has niacin, and Thaimin, and Folate/Folic Acid, and B6, and perhaps Biotin, and what not. B's are great for energy and shit. In WWII, B12 was used in massive amounts for battle anxiety and shit. I can't find the source for that anywhere anymore, though wtf.
The author thinks this is the shit, but gets tolerance for it. Here's what he said directly:
Does NADH really improve energy, concentration, and mood? I have taken NADH on numerous occasions. Within an hour or two of taking it on an empty stomach, in the morning, I notice an increase in alertness, feeling of well being, vitality, visual calrity, and sexual interest.
I paraphrased more or less.
6.) TMG and DMG
Good for mental alertness, and clarity and shit. Apparantly really potent according to author. This sounds cool I might try it.
Pretty much same as above in effects. Well being, and energy, and focus and stuff. Again, look up this stuff for yourself, because a lot of it I have no experience with. And I'm not about to recite this whole book to you about the side effects and cautions and what not, let alone dosages.
I've heard about this a lot. Apparantly it really works really well with piracetam. I have yet to try it, but I have seen it in my local store. Actually, almost everything listed here can be found in local pharmacies or wallgreens or whatever. This is good for Mood, alertness, concentration, visual enhancements and the like. Motivation too. Too much may cause anxiety.
9.) Anti-oxidants are good to use. Vitamin C, E, adn the like. IDK if they are noticable, but they are good for general health and longevity and stuff.
10.) C10 and CoQ10
When I saw this shit in the store, it was WAY WAY overpriced. 'F that, but apparantly it does work really well. Supposed to give you more energy, urge to take a long walk or be physically active. Slight mood elevation, ehnaced focus, motivation and productivity, along with desire to talk to people. May contribute to insomnia if you take it too late.
This guy in this book almost seems like he's saying the same shit but for different drugs lol. Not really, but I'm just giving you the gist of it. Arousal, vigilance, and increased mood.
12.) Lipoic Acid.
RELAXED WELL BEING AND VISUAL IMPRoVEMENTS. Apprantly.
Induce relaxation, sleep even if you are tired. Improve mood, reduce hunger, effective for insomnia. Tolerance develops quickly, though. Most stuff that relaxes you like this does, so you have to varry your substances if you are using them daily. I haven't tried this because IIRC it has adverse effects that I don't like, but I might try it soon anyway because anxiety.
I use this to sleep. Works alright. I think I have a tolerance. Meh, I once knew a dude who used it during the day for withdrawal and shit.
Now for the herbal shit:
Apprantly made the author sleepy.
15.) Ginko Biloba
Good if you are really old with memory problems I guess. A lot of people take it for stuff, but meh.
Enhancement in motivation, focus, mood and alertness. with peacefulness.
17.) Huperzine A
Alerg, focused. mild.
19.) St Johns wort
For depression mostly. Well being and shit.
20.) Sleep enough, work out maybe, stuff like that.
A lot of this should be in local stores. The books are:
Mind Boosters by Ray Sahelian, and Brain Boosters by Beverly potter and Sebastian Orfali. I recommend getting them and reading them if possible and keeping them as references. Meh. Or just use this thread or the internet. Up to you.
