I don't wanna resort to subcirclejerks.

After realizing drugs will not give me answers, only guide me to them, I've started a nootropic supplement. My only smart choices were l-theanine+caffeine and a b6 and b12 heavy multivitamin, which I was using to supplement a straight 5-HTP supplement for a few days. All this was while I was taking 150mg Wellbutrin daily, which I've been told is an anti-nootropic. I also bought a GABA supplement which I read has low oral bioavailability but one person has tried to tell me otherwise. I've switched to ashwaganda extract which already has some (possibly placebo but existing nonetheless) effect

What can I do to smarten my selection up? I think I've learned a lot from my few days with boosted serotonin but it's too soon to tell, a more gradual everyday capable boost would be appreciated along with ways to raise my dopamine and norepinephrine like I was trying to do with the buproprion. I think I've got my GABA covered with the ashwaganda, but any other good ways to lower anxiety would be nice, along with ways to maybe raise glutamate (I read l-glutamine both could and couldn't do this)

Can't speak for the guy but he basically posted 4 nootropics that are heavily backed by research. Ginkgo has little researhc proving it to be nootropic but its in general not a bad thing to take on a regular basis.

I would add noopept to this list. The sad things is that theres just no definitive way to determine what is and is not an effective nootropic. Even piracetam has a wide range of effects depending on who takes it.

I feel this pain. I can feel where the aniracetam I've added to my stack helps and where it hurts. I want to add the ginseng after reading up on it but I'm not sure if it'll just end up being made redundant by the l-tyrosine or St. John's

What do you mean with bupropion being an anti-nootropic? If you're taking it/were taking it for depression, there is some evidence for it helping the cognitive problems caused by depression (see below). I can't find anything indicating that bupropion causes cognitive problems.


I am currently just trying l-theanine and caffeine. Didn't take caffeine before as it would make me extremely tense and somewhat anxious while the effects lasted, then worsened depression for hours afterwards. (While I was still mentally healthy I was on like 600-800 mg of caffeine a day.)

With l-theanine, I can take caffeine, and there was a very clear increase in the time I could concentrate on studying. That was 1 large cup of coffee - no tolerance to caffeine, obviously - and 500 mg l-theanine. Also on 150 mg of bupropion.

I've had this very minor chalazion on my upper right eyelid for a few months now, but just now started to treat it. It's draining very slowly, but draining all right. I've had a stye in that same eye a few years ago, so I'm thinking that it didn't drain properly and the residual ended up becoming a chalazion. I think I'm prone to these things even though I have extremely good hygiene, but whatever.

I recently read about Staphysagaria and how certain people fit the profile. I was kind of shocked I was able to relate to over half of the criteria. But I stumbled upon that subject from researching how to prevent getting this eye shit in the future. I've never tried homepathy.

Do any of you guys have any, absoluely any type of light to shed on homepathy? I'm also a little weary on the dosage. You dissolve 5 pellets 3 times a day, but a lot of these online homeopaths suggest you just take one dose and wait it out a week. I have no problem doing that, but I want to use my time as efficiently as possible. I got a low dose, 30c

right now i'm taking clarithromycin for a sinus infection. i know that it's normal for it to cause a weird metallic or bitter taste (have taken clarith once before and azithromycin countless times as a kid due to frequent sinus infections). personally i don't think it's so bad that i can't deal with it for 10 days, but i'm just curious: what's the cause of this lingering taste? i don't taste anything when actually swallowing the pills so i don't think it's just from traces of it left in my mouth

It's generally not known why and there are many theories like taste receptors damage, changes in neurotransmitters, alterations in the composition of saliva, well, stuff like that but nobody knows for sure. In your particular case, keep in mind that the very sinus infection can provoke changes in taste by itself, so probably it's not only the antibiotic but a combination of factors is also possible.

I have some skin problems, and I’m looking for advice.
I’m going to Germany for work in a few weeks to work during summer, will do physical labor, so I would like to have my skin fixed somehow.

So, the hand skin problem looks like in the picture. Started when I was like 16 or something, it happens usually twice a year, beginning of winter and summer, lasts for a week or two and goes away, after that skin seems normal, maybe sweats a bit too much.

Starts off with pointing and thumb fingertips peeling off slowly, and it will peel completely, several layers of skin, to the point where it becomes a wound in some places.
After first layer peel, spreads to other fingertips and to the rest of hands.
Finger tips become much harder and I can press my fingertip skin in and it stays pressed in for some time, I think it’s called edema, not sure… this makes very painful sensation under the fingernails if pressed even a bit.
This time it’s a bit different, it also has an itchy red rash with very small bubbles mostly colorless or white liquid.

I use hand creams, they help with the dryness, but the problem is still there.
I called local dermatologists, the free ones are available in a month soonest, so that’s not an option, and since I’m a poor student, I can’t afford private dermatologist.

Also I have small dermatitis in the middle of my chest, minor dandruff in hair, ears, face also comes and goes, and generally dry skin.

Had the same thing one summer when I got sick and got a fever so I had do sweat it out. The dermatologist told me that this sweating combined with the usual sweating from the hot weather fucked up the glands in my hands. What happened was basically my skin shed and then it was like nothing had happened. Use a moisturizer on your hands and drink lots of water would be my advice.

I would not be so quick to trow a diagnosis like that one. That is not a typical localization for psoriasic lesions, and it's a commonly misdiagnosed condition so probably not even you have it. I'm not saying it's not, but a (good) dermatologist should check on OP to tell so.

There's this like hard lump under the skin of my dick on the top of my shaft. It doesn't hurt.

It's just a small, hard lump under the skin and it wasn't there like a week or two ago as far as I can tell.

It's not a fordyce spot, because it's under the skin and I only have those on the underside of my dick. This thing is hard and under the skin and feels like it's attached to a vein or something.

That shit is awesome. For an introduction, I suggest you getting "Reading the Body: Ohashi's Book of Oriental Diagnosis".
It's not hard to see that occidental medicine has quite a lot of limitations, mostly in what relates to preserving health instead of simply healing diseases. The meridian system, as well as the five elements system, can help a lot with everyday diagnosis of little malfunctions and are great to preserve one's health, know one's weaknesses and strong points and release the maximum potential of every person.
Of course there's no scientific basis for it, oriental diagnosis is more of an artistic discipline, and also it won't replace going to a hospital when you have cancer or have being stabbed in the chest, but it's a great complement for our western soulless medicine. Also, keep in mind that those eastern fellows don't separate body, psyche and spirit in the same way that we do, to them it's one and the same thing and what affects any of the three has an effect on the rest. For instance they believe that anger is an emotion linked to the liver, compassion to the spleen (to which they pay a lot more respect than we do) and so on. Also, what happens to those organs can have a repercussion all over them meridians and not only and sometimes not at all in the organ itself.
Anyways, it's different but good. If you won't be judging it and simply accepting what the guys say as something reasonable but totally apart from our scientific cannons, it can be very helpful for you.

Doesnt happen as often if I eata sugar free breakfast and lunch and then have sugar later in the day. Energy drinks do it to me the worst, but Im addicted to them.

Cortisol levels are higher in the mornings, with a peak at 6:00 AM. This makes your body more sensitive to glucose, so when you consume high amounts you release a lot of insulin and this paradoxically makes you hypoglycemic in a short term because the sugar passes from your bloodstream to the tissues quickly. You probably have some kind of metabolic condition that exacerbates this physiological phenomenon, probably not.
Avoid doing so, and I would even suggest you not having any breakfast at all. You can experiment with some intermittent fasting method like leangains, there's plenty of information about it on google. And stop poisoning yourself with those sodas and energy drinks, take black coffee instead.

Quite the contrary, I suggest you some kind of intermittent fasting. The brain works better when fasted. I use an IF of 16 hours of fasting and 8 of feeding window, usually from 14:00 to 22:00.

I'm a web developer at the moment and spend most of my energy on mental activity and this has proven to be most effective for me:
Extremely light snacks, lots of water and fruit and nuts and greens (cabbage, kale, chard, algae for me), a couple of eggs for protein if you can't eat enough nuts, steel cut oats, peanut butter, lots of good fat like milk, butter, coconut, and olive oil. Lots of mangoes, berries, dried papaya, and citrus for fruit.
I also fast regularly which seems to definitely help. I usually only eat once or twice a day and just eat an orange or banana or something when I get super hungry outside my main meal.
I take lots of herbs: kratom, matcha, espresso, American/Siberian/Indian ginsengs, ginkgo, St. John's wort, chamomile.
The herbs are a very personal thing but that diet (plus frequent naps and walks and stretching to keep from burning out and getting damaged from extended sitting [which will fucking kill you]) is top notch for extended mental activity with low physical. I load up on sweet potatoes and chicken and fish when I'm active.
