In reply to Flowering Quince: dopamine reuptake inhibitor, posted by psychobot5000 on May 14, 2012, at 16:56:29
I am happy to report that Flowering Quince, a putative SELECTIVE dopamine reuptake inhibitor, seems to be psychoactive in humans. Or in me, anyway.
The initial experience after ingesting 2 tsp of flowering quince concentrated extract powder
...appears to include the following:
Slightly greater motivation and interest in various activities
Clarity of the senses (I have reason to believe my mind's sensory processing may be a bit muddled compared to the average individual)
It is possible I took too much--I felt better in the minutes before this substance reached full effect; the powder had a rapid onset, appearing to reach full effect in about 30 minutes.
Initial impression: recommended for ADHD and cognitive troubles, and possible anhedonic, anergic, unmotivated depression. Uncertain if the quince provides any direct mood benefit. Caution in cases of anxiety may be appropriate.
Thanks to Becket for helping me find the stuff.
Plan: Assuming no unpleasant side-effects result, I will keep taking this at lower dosages, in hopes there may, down the line, be some antidepressant effect that develops (I suffer from unipolar depression with cognitive problems).
