    Whats the best nootropics to get and combinations of them if any. I tried psychotropin today and took choline along with it...didn't feel any different at all.

    Is there anything that works better and is safe for you?

    Why don't you try taking it more than one time before writing it off as complete crap.

    It's just that the DMAE worries me after reading about the side effects and would like something a little safer. I haven't read anywhere that you need to take this for any amount of time...yet I didnt find much on it either.

    side effects = bad taste
    i haven't had any bad side effects. I'm feeling to some degree or another what most people have posted around the internet. heightened mental acuity, alertness, INT+1, etc.
    my old roommate is all up on the nootropics.

    i've tried piracetam and alcar, you could get it at 1fast400.com and they also have articles on them. take 1tsp of each together in the morning then again in the afternoon. some people take it with choline, because piracetam drains your bodys choline store which might cause headaches.

    I took piracetam and lecithin (for choline).

    It took maybe about a week to "feel" any effects, and the effects were minimal.

    I mostly became much more receptive of audition and less inclined to talk.

    damn. I dont want to wait that long. As long as I take choline with the DMAE thats in psychotropin im ok right? each pill is like 1200mg of choline (lecithin) and theres only 200mg of dmae in the other stuff im takin

    theres 1200mg of high choline lecitin and 420mg of phosphatidyl choline (as soy lecithin) I dont want fishy body odor:noes:

    i love me some gaba. if i take a lot(a full teaspoon, about 3 grams), it really loosens me up and relaxes me not that dissiimilar to a buzz from a few alcoholic beverages honestly, and i definitely sleep MUCH better taking some gaba right before bed. i wake up on my own, an hour earlier than my alarm clock is set to go off feeling refreshed not having tossed and turned all night like i do a lot of the time plus i have some really funny dreams that i can actually remember in the morning. gaba rules, its one of the cheapest nootropics too, i love it.

    Hm the few times I've taken Melatonin as a sleep aid I wake up refreshed. You gotta get a good 8 solid hours or more in though.

    How much are you supposed to take with this? Full teaspoon is about 2.6 grams. Just wondering if taking that much at a time is safe and how often I could take it.

    I read you can take from 2-5grams and the effectiveness of gaba maxes out at 18grams I'll stick with the 3grams.
