Memantine Makes Caffeine Great Again!

did one little blue tablet in the morning along with a capsules of Uridine, 10 milligrams of Noopept and my adaptogenic herbs. Then I went to my favorite cafe to hangout and work on my laptop; I usually drink two large cafe Americanos, about 45 minutes later halfway through my first coffee memantine’s effects were becoming quite noticeable;

  • I was quite energetic and motivated.
  • I’m was pretty creative and in a good mood.
  • I ordered a second coffee but only drank half of it as I felt pretty wired.
  • After working several hours I took a little break to read a book. I found the book very engrossing and intellectually stimulating — I had trouble putting it down!
  • I noticed that day that my vision was just a little impaired, which is not good because my eyes are pretty bad to begin with.
  • By the end of the day though I had mixed feeling about Memantine, I felt quite frazzled and socially awkward. My motor control seemed a little off as well, my typing was a little inaccurate, although I was motivated to work pretty late into the night.
    In the future I’ll isolate Memantine and caffeine or Memantine and Racetams.

Day 2
I did a single memantine in the morning and then went to my favorite cafe. I had two large coffees like normal and the effect of the memantine was barely noticeable. Thankfully the vision impairment did not return. This time I isolated the caffeine. I didn’t do any other smart drugs that day. There were no cognitive fireworks like the day before.

Day 3
Today I did Noopept and Uridine — no caffeine along with 10 milligrams of Memantine. I didn’t notice a particularly potent effect from the Noopept or Uridine. I’m not sure if I like Memantine, I do kind of feel like I’m on drugs when I use it. I don’t quite feel like myself on it. The upside is unimpressive.

Day 4
I did 10 milligrams of again with two strong coffees. Nothing special to report.

Day 5
Getting a little bored with 10 milligrams I upped the dose to two little blue tablets, 20 milligrams. Wow.
I did two tablets in the morning on an empty stomach and about 40 minutes later had a strong coffee.
After a few minutes I had a visceral sensation of blood rushing into the front of my brain, it was a bit euphoric.
I drank a second coffee and was quite wired by the caffeine for about 5 hours.
It suppressed my appetite and I had a late lunch.
20 milligrams of memantine and caffeine is a pretty good stack!

I stopped using Memantine because it just makes me feel a little odd and there’s plenty of good Nootropics that have a similar stimulating effect. I also noticed that it hurts my sleep quality; I tossed and turned for hours late into the night a couple of times after combining Memantine and coffee, especially if I was drinking coffee in the midafternoon. I now use a little bit of pharma grade Nicotine to complement my morning caffeine dose.
