Amber, that was a great post. It looks like this drug is working well for you. I have never heard of it but I have heard good things about all of the nootropic drugs. In Europe they give nootropics as standard treatment for stroke victims.
Please be aware that the person who posted above me will try to get you to eat a certain diet and thinks that the answer to every single health problem is this particular diet. It is not necessarily the viewpoint of everyone on this forum so don't get discouraged if you feel like they are spamming you.
I tried DMAE once but it didn't do much.
Some people have unpredictably good reactions to stimulants like ritalin and it calms them down. No one knows for sure why this is.
If this drug you are taking is GRAS or very minimally toxic then it sounds like a good thing.
