I have a similar experience with CDP-Choline, started it a few weeks ago, my cognitive and emotional capacity has more than doubled!
Ive been using 250-500mg a day, sometimes I find that I sometimes get euphoria, over arousal and intense emotional revelations with the 500mg dose, so I dont see any pointi in going any higher.
I have Aspergers syndrome and according to examine.com on CDP-Choline it seems that increases activity in alot of important areas including the amygdala (I believe I have hypofunction there by nature).
If you want to read more about my experiences Im also active on epiphany blogspot.
If anyone who has also has Aspergers is reading this, I would highly recommend trying CDP-Choline.
What were you diagnosed with by the way Marya?
Hi Aspie, I had a good experience with CDP-Choline and I became high function while on it. My executive function got better!
I stopped it for a while because I don't want to become tolerant to it. the research suggests taking it with a drug called Galantamine to avoid receptors desensitization. For how long have you been taking it? and does it still working for you? The last question, are you taking other supplements that boost it or on its own? I was taking it with my regime(NAC, Omega3, vitamin D, Lion's mane)
I was on 250mg CDP-Choline by the way and I never took more than that since it was enough for me( I'm under weight so probably that's why)
I didn't know that it is important for the amygdala area! I know it boost acetyl choline in the brain so it support brain function.
I will read on that!
What were you diagnosed with by the way Marya
I was diagnosed with Aspergers/Autism syndrome.
Honestly, after trying CDP-choline I'm thinking to try Piracetam, It is very safe and effective. Have you considered it?
Same here Marya, I have been using it for about a month in total now and I can strongly recommend this to anyone with Aspergers, I have not noticed any tollerance to it yet, taking it on an empty stomach seems to give better effects compared to taking it with a meal.
I also use NAC, taurine, glutamine, citrulline, omega3 and I also responded very well to cordyceps which I used 2-3months ago but ran out of my supply.
Piracetam puts my brain into overdrive (even at 400mg), Im not sure if I really liked the effect, it certainly helps to 'understand' things more easy and made life less stressfull, however it felt as if my emotional capacity was behind my cognitive function while on it.
It will definatly help your cognitive function, however start low, the pills I have are 800mg and they can be broken into half, but im sure that even 200mg might have an effect on you.
On other forums Ive also read that piracetam is used by alot of people with aspergers, this is due to it affecting the corpus callosum which allows more efficient communication between the left and right side of the brain.
Vitamin d3 I have stopped using as my levels have more than double exceeded the upper limit (it definatly was beneficial though).
