      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.

      Yes, im necroing this post (by the way, why do we have such a thing as "necroing posts", ...if a thread is too old, it should simply be closed. ) But hopefully this post will save someone from over-dosing on Huperzine-A.


      I don´t know how many people DrTechnical you have killed, but the 200 mg dose of Huperzine-A you recommend is 1,000 times, yes ONE THOUSAND times the recommended daily dose. The recommended daily dose is 200 mcg. That is MICROGRAMS, not MILLIGRAMS. mcg vs. mg. No wonder you flunked med school.


      Huperzine-A usually comes in capsules of 100 mcg or 200 mcg. So, technically, DrTechnical, you would need to take 1,000 capsules of the typical Hup-A capsule to reach your recommended dose. I guess that's why you have not posted in a while, ,,... you are still too busy popping them pills, ...or you have ODed already and jacked up your ACh receptors into Super Huperzine-A lalaland!!!!

      Thanks so much for informing me of this error. Yes, mcg. You are correct sir. Whoopsie daisy. BTW, I'm a PhD in engineering, not a medical doctor. SO take that for what it's worth.

      So as you can see I am quite alive. I left Dreamviews after all the interesting people flew the coup and it became a for profit business. Seeker, Moonbeam, PJ. Those were the days.

      BTW #2, I see you've had < 30 LDs. I can help you get lucid but I will require payment. You can go to Mortal Mist and Deep Dreaming. I've had well over 2000 documented lucid dreams. I have published papers, a book, various radio and blog interviews, a US patent on lucid dream induction, etc ...

      You're either very angry or very jealous. Maybe both? Hard to say?

      Good luck with your continued mediocre results.
