I am not sure exactly why, but Hardartery is suspended.
I am not sure I’ve ever noticed this behavior from him.
10 mg of Adderall should work pretty well. That amount can make one pretty focused. I have taken that dose in college, and learned a half semester of linear algebra in an afternoon, and got the high score on the midterm (I scored in the 90s, and the average was in the 20s lol). It is a powerful drug.
I think over time one can get tolerance to it especially if one has too high of dose. 10 mg is a good starting spot IMO.
We’ll see…modafinil was supposed to be a wonder drug but I felt nothing. There are some people that have an enzyme disfunction that dont metabolize these things. Hardartery is one and he is convinced I am another based on how other drugs, including caffeine, have no effect. Its called the CYP2D6 enzyme and some have none or a little so the drugs never get metabolized.
Well I know my DHEA is low because I was supping that and Pregnenalone based on those tests being on the far low end of normal. Not deficient but not great. I stopped because I think they were affecting my libido. Weird I know but I felt better before I started taking them and now two days free I feel hunger growing.
Thanks for the advice. I will check it out and read up too.
Crazy. 10 mg of quick release Adderall had me up all night (I took it about 10 am), and I learned a half a semester of linear algebra that day (got the high score on the midterm). I guess we all respond to drugs differently.
Well hardartery called it. Based on my caffeine response and response to other drugs it seems Im produce minimal amounts or am missing the needed enzyme. Im going to see if anyone offers discovery of this through testing. I already have my raw data.
Hardartery says there isn’t. Says they are just now starting to ramp up research on it.
“A deficiency of the CYP2D6 enzyme is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait; these subjects (7% of Caucasians, about 1% of Orientals) are classified as poor metabolizers . … Of these, more than 15 encode an inactive or no enzyme at all. Others encode enzyme with reduced, ‘normal’ or increased enzyme activity.”
