User Comments about Vincamine
07 Mar 2012 I believe this needs to be introduced in conjunction with l tyrosine and l dopa. They in my expertise and observation work synergistically;" while adding l arginine which increases effects treshold" . results vary depending on the following factors: if taken with food and ratio of arginine needs to be in multiple grams in dosage to aquire more than a placebo effect and increase bodily funtions like neurotransmition and nitric oxide and vital hormones to increase." (phd,Independent study)

18 Aug 2010 I was given Vincamine, along with several other nutritional supplements, by an endocrinologist a few years ago. I did not take all of them at the time, and went back to an old bottle of the Source Naturals vincamine recently, not quite remembering (how ironic!) what it was for. I decided to check it out, read a little on the net, and took one pill, doubting that it would do anything immediately, especially since the bottle was even old. But I was surprised to feel an immediate effect that was not unlike the Nuvigil I had been taking for chronic drowsiness and fogginess, but better in some ways. Better because it seemed to help some nerve problems I was having in my foot due to a severe sciatic attack that had left me with some slight disability in my foot. I seemed to have more blood flow or something, more energy in my legs, more normality than I had been having. The downside is that, like Nuvigil, you can become so hyperfocused (I was taking computer classes and doing programming) that I would forget to eat, or even drink water! So I had to remind myself to break for food and water. That's fine for dieting, but Vincamine did, at least at first, seem to affect my sense of taste negatively, whereas Nuvigil had no such effect. And I noticed a very slight GI disturbance also with the Vincamine, but it went away with use. So I still take Nuvigil sometimes, alternating as needed with Vincamine. As for lowering blood pressure, I'm not sure, since my BP monitor stopped working, but I'll try to track that as time goes by. I read somewhere that there were some rare effects on people with some kind of heart arrhythmias or something; I have not noticed any heart flutterings or caffeine-like symptoms, just what seems like being normally awake, a positive change from the daytime drowsiness I was having. But I would not recommend taking Vincamine late at night; it might keep you up all night, unless you are already very physically tired. (That goes for Nuvigil obviously as well.)
