Brain Doping?
Anyone else use cognition enhancing drugs to try and get a step or two back? I'm starting an ALCAR/L-Dopa/Aniracetam/Oxiracetam/Adrafinil stack. Anyone else play with nootropics to keep up with the young turks?

#sigh

Is it an antidepressant? The only thing I've read about that has some studies behind it is Nicotinamide Riboside (NR/Niagen) which is a recently discovered type of B-3. I think it's been shown to be used by the mitochondria.

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

... keep up with the young turks?

It's all just a matter of perspective.

The young Turks look as though they are ahead of you when you're about to lap them ... again.

Sounds interesting. Does it work? What are the other effects? How do you get hold of nootropics?

I use coffee and forcing myself to learn new stuff, but some days, blech...

RE: Brain Doping?
Huh! Even caffeine is off the menu for me!

Never bothered with "enhancement" of any kind through drugs. Most of those I know that tried it are now suffering from their experiments in some way; cancer, COPD, alcoholism, cognitive problems, even psychosis in one case.

Oh, I drank too much in my youth, smoked long enough for it to contribute to my near fatal heart attack and present somewhat debillitated condition. Though I am probably in better general fettle than my 20 years younger neighbour who is way obese, diabetic and has COPD but still drinks like a fish and smokes like a chimney.

Drugs, other than those needed to maintain life, are a mug's game IMHO. The short term gain is not worth the long term cost.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.
