  1. NAD+ IV Therapy = Miracle

    @DC011381 I know the feeling. I thought my brain was permanently messed up. Hang in there!
  2. NAD+ IV Therapy = Miracle

    @Onedayatatime my mom is tapering and she is getting treatments right now so yes, it will help you get off it faster. Just don’t take it the same day you get the NAD administered, if you can. Just remember, always amino acids combined with the NAD. Let me know how it goes.
  3. NAD+ IV Therapy = Miracle

    @m34 no problem! Just make sure if you decide to do it they give you amino acids (Myers cocktail push + glutathione) during your treatment. It makes the NAD much more efficient and bindable aka you won’t need as many NAD treatments if amino acids are administered with it. I would say do it once for $350 then 2 or 3 days later get another one (250mg NAD both times) and see how you feel! Definitely worth the money and you are investing in your health!! We all put a lot of stress on our cells and mitochondria using amphetamines for so long so our energy and nerves are shot. I’m 28 so I only needed 4 IV’s at 250mg but for some it might take more or maybe less for others. Let me know how you feel if you decide to do it! Congrats on 7 months!
  4. Hey guys, I started a thread on this exactly a year ago when I was researching NAD. I was having trouble being off adderall/vyvanse after 6 months of suicidal depression. A few months ago I finally decided to just spend the money and do a couple NAD+ IV's with amino acids. It's expensive but after 4 IV's ($350 per IV) I feel like a new person and my depression and anxiety has lifted. I no longer crave adderall or even alcohol. I live in LA so these IV's are being administered at more clinics but other states aren't as progressive so it might be harder to get/practitioners aren't as educated. Anyways, for those who are suffering and want it to just fucking stop, it's worth it. Here's a link to some info about it. Also, I was pre-med and studied Nutrition in college so I'm always up to date on the latest advances in medicine Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Don't give up hope! Sami
  5. @alx1667 I had the WORST withdrawals the first 4 months like slurred my words had the worst brain fog no motivation suicidal thoughts panic attacks it was so bad. I tried anything and everything. I’m at work or else I would type out a long email. But there are about 5 or 6 vitamins that got me through plus a tiny dose of Xanax (although some may not approve of this) to get me through the panic attacks and fear of dying was a life savor for me.
  6. NAC, lions mane, Aniracetam, a SMALL amount of Xanax in the morning .25 no more. IV therapy. Magnesium. I probley spent $1000 on vitamins before I found the right combination. DM me!
  7. @BK99 I know the struggle, trust me. I was on vyvanse/adderall everyday for 7ish years and I even still slip up once every few months which sucks but trying to not slip up at all anymore. Have you tried Aniracetam or adrafinil? Sometimes I’ll sleep for 14 hours in a night and feel so lethargic and adrafinil gets me out of my brain fog and helps with my anxiety a lot. I also get IV therapy a lot (I can go into detail of what I get if you are interested) and I try and steam every morning. It really gets my heart pumping and I practice my daily breathing exercises in the steam room. I’m an actress so getting off this shit is HELL and there are days I suck so bad that I don’t even want to book a role and I don’t know what to say to my agent. But when I just believe in myself and go for it despite the brain fog and anxiety I feel I come out feeling clear minded. I’m trying to believe our brain is more powerful at healing itself than we know. But there’s also days where I’m like no, I’m not getting out of bed because I love myself and my body and am going to listen to what it needs. I also did cerebrolysin for awhile and that helped a lot. I’m 28 and still look 20 so I’m going out for really energetic young roles and I don’t want PAWS to determine my acting future but the good thing is I’m still booking. And when I feel I can’t do it I will just tell my agent I need time off. I live by myself in LA which helps a lot not being judged by roommates/my boyfriend/friends. Meditation/IV therapy/Aniracetam has saved me many of days. Just thought I’d throw that out there!! Also cerebrolysin but you have to inject yourself so not sure if you are into that. I’m here if you ever want to DM me!!
  8. Two Years!

    The “I was cleaning my closest tomorrow” for seven years made me laugh in the best yet saddest way because I know EXACTLY what you mean! I did/have been doing the same thing. FUCKING CONGRATS on 2 years and thank you for this inspiring post that I NEEDED! The brain is always repairable and we all have to remember that in our recovery.
  9. NAD+ anyone?

    Also! Has anyone tried NAD+ IV therapy? Its super expensive but think im going to do it. Would love anyones opinion on this!
  10. Hey y'all haven't been on here in awhile but I was wondering if anyone has problems with the flow of their writing (if you do write) like not being able to think of the best word to use, etc? I'm a writer as well as actor (more so actor) but every time i sit down to write i can't find my stream of consciousness like i used to be able to and my creative writing is shit. Its been about 7 months off vyvanse (definitely with a few slip ups) but wondering if this comes back or else thats really gonna suck.

    I did like 5 vials of it and at first I noticed I was a lot happier but that only lasted a few days then I didn’t really get any benefit. I REALLY benefitted from Cerebrolysin the week I was on it but you are supposed to do 5 weeks of it before you stop so after two weeks the effects wore off but I could still tell such an amazing difference.
  12. Hang it there, it gets much better!

    When you say you struggle what is it you struggle with most? Do you feel back to normal?

    I’d love to meet up @bw321 !

    @SeanW you are lucky to have your dad that understands! I tried to seek help from my family but they didn’t take me seriously.
  15. Anthony Bourdain suicide

    I thought so too. And I remember planning to kill myself multiple times and how I was going to do it in the first few months because I couldn’t see any light in the darkness but thankfully I made it through. It’s such a scary thing and I’m so sad today. I have a semi colon tattooed on my wrist, I got it when I was thinking about killing myself and everyday seeing it is a reminder that my story is not over yet. Ugh life is a tough thing . Sad sad day. So amazing having this community!
