Avoid Interactions: The occurance of interactions between Acetyl Carnitine and Zyprexa are rare but present. I would avoid the use of these two together. There have been rare cases of psychosis with the use of both. Please consult with your primary doctor or psychiatrist if you would like to continue.

Acetyl-acetylcholine: The simple answer is yes! There are a number of articles about this on the web, many of which would be hard to understand, but some should make sense.
