If you do take aricept, take it with 500mg each morning of CDP Choline (aka citicoline). Jarrow's is good.

There's been s study of galantamine and CDP Choline for schizophrenia (cognitive impairment). It has good theory behind it. CDP choline is synthetic, and passes the blood brain barrier (as opposed to choline bitarate) to convert to choline. This becomes synergystic with an anticholinterase drug like galantamine or aricept.
