      Huperzine A - the cheaper galantamine????

      Just came accross this stuff. It was recommended by amazon (where I buy my galantamind).

      It sounded like a possible lucid aid in that it boosts memory. SO I checked it out on Wikipedia and read the following. Its way cheaper than galantamine also - 10$ for 120 tabs vs 40$ for 90 galantamind. Anybody try these yet? What do you think ?

      Huperzine A has also attracted the attention of Western medical science. It is currently being investigated as a possible treatment for diseases characterized by neurodegeneration – particularly Alzheimer’s disease.[2][3] It has been found to be an inhibitor of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase.[4] The structure of the complex of huperzine A with acetylcholinesterase has been solved by X-ray crystallography (PDB code: 1VOT; see the 3D structure).This is the same mechanism of action of pharmaceutical drugs such as galantamine and donepezil used to treat Alzheimer's disease. Huperzine A is also a NMDA receptor antagonist[citation needed] which protects the brain against glutamate induced damage, and it increases nerve growth factor levels.[citation needed]

      Clinical trials in China have shown that huperzine A is comparably effective to the drugs currently on the market, and may even be a bit safer in terms of side effects.[citation needed]

      It's pretty well known that Hup-A + Nicotine has a subjectively similar effect as the G/C combo.

      I would try 200 mg H and 7 mg N via a patch. H alone may not give you very good results.
