Re: NADH for dopamine

Zo, since you brought up painful drug trials, a few thoughts:
I have done about 30-40 drug trials over the last 15 years, suffering through long periods of painful, debilitating side effects, to the point where I dread any new drug trial, and get increasingly pessimistic about being able to tolerate a therapeutic dose of anything. (Except for my precious few : klonopin, seroquel, and low-dose lamictal).

It’s safe to say that I generally don’t tolerate prescription psych meds, so I have supplemented the ones I do take with nutritional supplements. I take a full array of vitamins, “just in case”. And 4 months ago, started high-dose fish oil, because a clinical trial showed it to be helpful for bipolars.

Anyway, this isn’t an introduction to a success story. I haven’t experienced any real benefits from the fish oil, but figure it is at least giving any other drugs a better chance of working.

But here’s what MAY be interesting:
I just started (and am still researching) the supplement NADH, which is supposed to raise brain dopamine, with no side effects. I’ve been on it for only 10 days, and maybe am experiencing a little benefit, but it’s too soon to say.
I emailed Dr. Birkmeyer (the “guru” of NADH, and whose father did the research of L-dopa for Parkinson’s), and did get a brief email back, although he normally doesn’t respond to emails.
He claimed that NADH was highly effective and without Mirapex’s side effects (claiming Mirapex has been taken off the market in Germany, due to it’s side effects).

There’s some good info., and a pretty impressive bio of Dr. Brinkmayer at But anyone that doesn’t want to baother researching it, I’m continuing the trial, and will keep you posted….
