How should I take cerebral success daily? How to benefit the maximum? Will it really help my focus and memory in a safe way? Help

"Cerebral Success": This is a proprietary blend of herbal supplements and nutrients, but there are no studies of this product. (there are some studies of individual ingredients.) the website does not inspire my trust at all when it says: "cerebral success was specifically designed as a study pill to provide an Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) alternative for students who are taking the drug without a prescription." I don't recommend it. ...Read more

Taking focus factor does that count as a daily vitamin? And is it even a good supplement to take?

Taking focus factor does that count as a daily vitamin?  And is it even a good supplement to take?

YES, it depends...: Yes, focus factor is a decent mulitvitamin- not great (esp. For the price) but better than many. It's selling point is its blend of flavonoids, phyonutrients ; herbs to improve brain function but it is impossible for me to evaluate how good it is because these are a proprietary blend, meaning they don't reveal the amount of each. There is probably not enough of each for much benefit- see comment:. ...Read more

I have daily headaches, eye pain. And I have difficulty focusing when reading — what can I do?

I have daily headaches, eye pain. And I have difficulty focusing when reading — what can I do?

Start with eye exam: Your symptoms suggest perhaps you're having visual changes, although it may be that the headaches are primary, since pain of any kind makes life in general more difficult. Start by ruling out a physical explanation--eye exam, general physical. If those are normal, consider stress, anxiety, & depression, all of which can produce these kinds of physical symptoms and are highly treatable. ...Read more

I have epilepsy and take 200mg topamax (topiramate) twice daily. Is it ok to take Adderall or Adderall XR with my topamax (topiramate) to assist with my anxiety/focus?

I have epilepsy and take 200mg topamax (topiramate) twice daily. Is it ok to take Adderall or Adderall XR with my topamax (topiramate) to assist with my anxiety/focus?

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR treats : Symptoms of adhd, but can increase anxiety, as can any stimulant. I could not find any studies on the efficacy of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for reducing topamax's side effects of difficulty with word-retrieval, loss of train-of -thought & loss of memory, so I'll refer your question to adult psychiatrists on the panel. Both meds can cause weight loss. There is no adverse drug interaction listed. ...Read more

I : I don't want to give the impression that I am not fully addressing your question with this response. I do recommend that you address this with your doctor / psychiatrist as she/ he knows key information about you and how your Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is being prescribed. For instance, if you are on an immediate release form of adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) you might have less side effects if you were treated with an extended release form. What time of day you take your adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) your dosage, if you are taking fast release form of stimulants with it, if you are ingesting caffiene are all issues which need to be taken into consideration. ...Read more

I have ADHD and a panic disorder. I take Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 50mg daily and recently started taking Klonopin .5mg PRN. Will this combo affect my ability to focus?

Although: The Klonopin (clonazepam) is a relatively small dose it may sedate early on in treatment! If this happens contact the prescribing provider who may want you to start with just one per day (at bed time) Ultimately the sedation will lift!

I will elect to withhold specific medical guidance ; encourage you to discuss this with your provider before making any changes to your meds. Take care. ...Read more
