In reply to atrophy of hypocampus- meds or disorder?, posted by judy1 on December 1, 2001, at 17:43:06

Hiya Judy,
Phosphatidyl serine seems to reduce cortisol output, which might help the deterioration of the hippocampus. A good handfull of studies show efficacy in improving memory in folks with mild dementia (not implying that you are demented.) PS shows some efficacy as an antidepressant. See "smart drugs II." I forget the author names, but its probably the only book by that name. I use PS for reduction in stimulant induced dysphoria and memory problems with some good results. However, IF YOU HAVE EPILEPSY IT IS PROBABLY NOT A GOOD IDEA TO TAKE THIS. Cortisol reduces activity of inflammatory chemokines that probably contribute to epilepsy. Also, PS might complicate blood sugar control. And one more down side.... amounts that reduce cortisol are fairly expensive. And yet another down side to PS... it can be processed from either plant or animal sources. I can't recommend that you take pills that might be processed from cow nervous tissue. 'Solgar' processes it from plant sources.

> Had a consult with a honcho in epilepsy- my dissociative symptoms are worsening. I heard him dictating after looking at my films, and heard this phrase. Is this med induced? I seem to remember reading about ptsd, thought I had some time for alzheimers, I'm only in my 30's. I really can't handle added stress. he wants me in hospital for more tests, NOT. If anyone has med info i would really appreciate it, if not i'll move the thread, ok? thank you- judy
