Why is it that doctors don't seem to know about nootropics?
Why is it that doctors don't seem to know about nootropics? I've asked like two and they didn't know...
Doctors do not care about reaching one's potential, they are just trying to keep you alive, and they look down upon the use of these drugs because it introduces many variables into your diagnoses
I almost always know more about the drugs doctors prescribe me then they do. I've had to tell doctors they can't prescribe things together more than once, even making a couple pull out the PDR and prove it to them. Doctors are not chemists or pharmacists. They don't specialize in pharmacology.
if you find a pharmacologist who also knows nutraceuticals [there is a Russian guy here who has that background] you can get the best info there, though I still prefer doing my own research
I had to stop a doctor from advising me to drink grapefruit juice to potentiate on medicine which would've potentiated another I was taking and increase the blood plasma to lethal levels. Sigh...
I've been diagnosed with bipolar II along with a severe anxiety disorder. I take Noopept which compliments my mood stabilizer (also treating mild epilepsy condition) VERY well. The two maintenance medicines I take work well to keep me stable but the addition of Noopept actually makes me a happy and "normal" human. No idea how I got along without it. Hell, my family and I have entertained the notion of me rejoining the workforce.
Doctors don't know shit besides how to diagnose shit, and sell
symptom suppressing drugs.
They're great at murdering people with cancer. Cancer is their speciality to not do anything useful, and steal from the "dying" who could easily live.
It's not that they're stupid (yes it is) its just that there's a massive conspiracy due to the fact that pharmaceutical companies are one of the top lobbyists buying off politicians, and they're intertwined with the eugenicists, and Bill Gates, and those nazis. Trying to reduce the population to save the Earth, by murdering your grandparents, and 3rd world children.
and on top of it NO ONE spends more money fighting against cannabis decriminalization than the pharmaceutical companies.
They're often the least educated people because they have no actual passion in doing their own research. Its an extremely CONTROLLED field. They want to ban vitamins
I took it three different times. The reaction got worse each time. I was convinced something else caused it, which is why I took it the other times. I took between 1-2g.
It gives me full body hives, and likely because I screwed around with it longer than I should have, mild nerve damage in my hands that healed within about 6 months. The ER doc prescribed me steroids and I had to take benedryl for a few days after the course of steroids ended.
I turned to eastern medicine when metformin wasn't controlling my diabetes. I found out about a Chinese herbal remedy that goes by the name of berberine in the west. It is gram for gram as effective as metformin and synergistic with it. I asked my doctor about it, he never heard of it. I found a lot of studies, all reported very good results. I started taking it. A couple of months later I had my blood retested, the doctor told me he had never seen as much improvement in any diabetic patient in his career (and he is 61 so has had a long career) and that my improvement was quite likely a record. So my advice to everyone, if Western medicines aren't doing it for you do not give up, research other cultures cures. My doctor not only knows little about nootropics but little about supplements in general. This seems to be the norm in the US medical community.
it doesn't necessarily mean it's not a good doctor if they don't know, but i saw a naturopath last year and when she asked me what supplements I was taking, she was not only impressed with how much I already knew about taking care of myself, she recognized everything I was using including the Racetams. That instantly made me feel like we were on the same page. A doctor who tried to warn me about using non-FDA-approved supplements would not be someone whose opinion I would trust very much in regard to internal medicine. I tend to use doctors to help me with straight-up body issues, like tendonitis in my elbow.
Nootropics by in large do not have FDA approval, so their is nothing that warrants their presence in medicine (and prescribing one which is tantamount to malpractice). Hence, we are not taught about them in medical school and physicians must learn about them through their own research. Some of us do know about them, but again, at this stage in the game (despite the fact that they are prescribed in other countries) we have to play by the rules here and not to loose our licenses. If you have had unsuccessful antidepressant therapy, keep going back to the doctor until you find something that does work. Chances are that you will get something prescribed that works and is covered by your insurance, rather than having to shell out money for something that your doc can give you. The typical treatment for depression always starts with an SSRI due to the fact the side effects are so low compared to TCAs (which cause a lot of side effects). If the SSRI doesn't work, then you can switch to an atypical or TCA.
