Negative effects from supplements?

7 posts in this topic

I am wondering, has anyone experiencedasting negative effects from any seemingly beneficial supplements or herbs?

I stared taking Lion's Mane, phosphatidylcholine, B complex, B2, fish oil, Lutein, Zeanthaxine, CoQ10, and Butterbur about a month or two ago. My visuals seem to keep steadily worsening.

Has anyone noticed any worsening visuals from any of these sups, especially Lion's Mane?? Afterimages are definitely worsening.

I also started Lamictal about a month ago.

It's very hard to tell what's doing it as you started to much to fast, lamactil very early makes your visuals worse but for me phosphatidylcholine, fish oil and coq10 all made mine worse

Sinemet, Clonazepam - They worsened my hppd slightly, but im almost sure, "permanently".
Lamictal, Flunarizinium - they give me stinging in my head and worsen my cognition temporarily

Piracetam - makes me irritable and increases ghosting big time.
Lion's Mane, Vinpocetine, Ginkgo Biloba, Kudzu - also gives me stinging in my head als worsens cogniotion temporarily (although lions mane first improved it)

CoQ10 - Took it for more than a week. First few days it felt like its improving my congition, now I take one pill and it makes me slower. Possibly worsened my memory or visual reaction slightly and more like longterm.

L-arginine - also worsens symptoms slightly

very weird thing - Flaxseed oil and fermented fish oil - after taking them, instantly it triggers hppd somehow - kills my thinking, increases ghosting, decreases visual reaction time. (somebody knows why could that be the case???????)

 

I think even ascorbic acid 1000mg or Magnesium Malate 2-4g makes me little spaced out, but I continue to take them at lower doses hoping for some long term benefits.

 

One thing that I keep taking and gives me no side effects or worsening of symptoms is 2g of grape seed extract everyday.
I gonna add few supplements to it about which you can read here: http://www.evernote.com/l/AbRcCksdg0BC46TZDRI0_7mxXXsN2lStOwE/

 

1. I start to think that anything that increases bloodflow in the brain makes me feel spaced out, worsens my cognition etc.
2. Also anything that increases/agonizes serotonin (gingko/kudzu/St. Johns Wort), gaba (clonazepam), dopamine (sinemet) - has some bad effect on me - although the mentioned herbs only affect me temporarily.

the list is longer, but I don't those are the most important ones I guess..

Oh ya right now im in a phase of retesting some things like vinpocetine in really low doses... Maybe my brain gets too much of something at a time and needs to get used to it.. I have read that with even replenishing neurotransmitter, worsening of symptoms can be experienced before the actual improvement.

 

I gonna take whatever supplements that protect against reperfusion injury as I have hypoperfusion in 2 regions in the brain, maybe those regions somehow do not tolerate sudden increase of bloodflow/increse of neurotransmitters... I don't know, these are my wild guesses.
