Nootropic recommendations
#1
Hi - I am 53 years old and have always had poor working and short term memory  along with word finding/word retreival issues.  I've been telling people I have Alzheimers ever since I found out what it was as a teenager Smile.  Since my early to mid 40's my memory has gotten much worse, to the point where its sometimes next to impossible to carry on a conversation because I can't remember half the words I want to say.  I take Vyvanse for ADHD (the benefit of which is pretty marginal) and have tried various brain supplements including Piracetam, Ginko Biloba, Acetyl-l-carnitine, Phosphatidylserine, L-Theanine, and various types of fish oil.  When I first started taking Phosphatidylserine I did note an improvement.  I didn't become Einstein or develop a photographic memory, but I seemed to remember things better.  But that seems to have been short lived.  I don't know if it was just the brand, but never had that effect again.  All the other products I have tried have made no difference whatsoever.  They only time I noticed a big improvement was when on low dose birth control, but am past the age for taking that.   I am wondering if I could get some recommendations for nootropics that may be beneficial, when these ones didn't produce any improvement.  Thanks.

Hi there, welcome to the forum! Poor memory can be a result of many things, but since you've found birth control pills to be helpful you may have a hormone problem. A lot of people have found pregnenolone to be very helpful, as well as DHEA. Both of these supplements can be bought from iHerb.com. Have you tried them?

Hi LiamSmith, welcome to the forums!

Yeah, some of them can help, but it all really depends on your symptoms. Memory is complex. Certain things can prevent you from using your memory properly thus leading you to think that you have poor memory, but it could be poor focus that's causing it, or lack of energy.

You should start your own thread with your symptoms and I'll see which nootropic(s) would be best for you.

Hi all!
Thank you for the accepting my registration!
I'm a newbie in a nootropic movement and I want to ask a question about this one: aniracetam
Is it good? Can it help me to improve my memory? And the main question - is it legal to use them for studying? I want to improve my memory!
Thank you all in advance!
