Is cognitive problems caused by antipsychotic like risperidone and lithium reversible? What duration of such medications beyond which such side effects are not reversible- 2/4/6 years?

DMAE is the only known supplement to increase IQ.  I take 125 mg/day, in the morning.  If I'm on a long drive, I take 250 mg every four hours--it helps with "vigilance."  DMAE also helps with mood.

Dear All,

For anyone taking certain brain-boosting suppliments or nootropics, three tips.

1. Eat a very healthy diet high in raw fruits, vegetables and oily fish.

I view my brain repair / optimisation as a pyramid, as such, it requires a solid foundation.

2. Cognitex.

It contains nutrients that fuel and nourish the brain such as a form of choline and phosphatidylserine.

3. Hydergine.

This is THE nootropic. Neuroprotective, granting lucidity of thought and working synergistically to enhance other nootropics. If you have not tried it then give yourself a gift.

Can any one reply to this ques: Can cognitive problems caused by antipsychotic like risperidone (ADHD, slow processing speed, low working memory)and lithium(dyslexia, restlessness, immediate and long term memory loss) be reversed? I was taking these medications for 4 years. Now I 've stopped them still now side-effects of those drugs not gone so that I can say I have become normal wrt those cognitive parameters.

7-Keto DHEA greatly helps memory recall.  To get this effect, you need to take approx. 150 mg/day, first thing in the morning.

I've just ordered from Europe a month's supply of a combination product called: Get Smart™  

I'm going to give it a month and see what the results are.  it contains the following:

Get Smart is the most advanced brain formula designed to improve Memory, Learning ability, and
Concentration while inducing a positive Mood and sense of well-being. Each ingredient in Get Smart
is known to have a positive effect on brain function and performance.

Centrophenoxine raises brain Acetylcholine levels thereby increasing Alertness, Attention Span,
and Learning Ability. It also increases cell lifespan by removing aging pigment (Lipofuscin) from brain
cells and the skin..

Aniracetam and Oxiracetam are nootropics that improve communication between the two
hemispheres of the brain.

Pyritinol increases Acetylcholine production and may improve Memory, Alertness, and Concentration.
It has been used in Europe since 1961 for various cognitive conditions such as Dementia, Head Injury,
and brain circulatory disorders.

Picamilon is a Russian nootropic that increases circulation to the brain. Picamilon is very effective in
reducing Stress Levels and Calming the mind to help focus attention. Picamilon is used in Russia to
treat anxiety, depression, and headaches.

Vinpocetine is a periwinkle plant extract that increases Blood Flow to the brain. Vinpocetine has been
extensively researched by the European pharmaceutical company Gedeon-Richter which found that
Vinpocetine improves the brain's utilization of glucose, the brain's main energy source.

Huperzine A (Huperzia serrata) is an ingredient found in Chinese club moss that extends the life of
Acetylcholine, the brain neurotransmitter necessary for Learning and Memory.

LEF writes about the positive effects of Pyritinol and Picamllon ... HERE

Any thoughts on Cognitex Basics?  I just bought a couple bottles at LEF.  I have been using the regular Cognitex with Pregnenolone for the past 4 months, but it's almost twice as expensive, so I downgraded this month to try and trim some costs.  It seems to have the 2 main active ingredients in regular Cognitex (Choline and Phos.), without the Vinpocetine, etc that some on this site seem to be questioning the effectiveness of anyway.
