I'm already taking 2 grams of lions mane a day to boost NGF and I have recently discovered ashitaba which is supposed to also boost NGF as well as overall wellness. I'm hesitant to order any because its freakin expensive but If anyone can tell me some posetive results I'll pull the trigger on some of this

My current meds/supplements:

 

Clonazepam 0.5mg twice daily

Lion's mane powder 2g in morning smoothie

Vitamin C 1g in morning smoothie

Astragalus ​​​extract 250mg

Krill oil one gel cap not sure of dose

Magnesium one gel cap not sure of dose

 

I like to think all of these are aiding in my recovery seeing as my HPPD I mild when compared to some of the people on here but its difficult to tell because my doc just upped my klonopin dose to the point where my visuals are reduced enough for me to have a grip on my life and continue with it "taking full time engineering classes and pledging a fraternity" aka can't be having anxiety and panic attacks screw with my studying.

 

My symptoms:

 

Vitreous floaters - seem to be getting better with time but were apparently due to a posterior vitreous detachment coincidentally when my hppd started according to my retina specialist. Although I'm sure hppd makes me notice them more.

 

Blue geometric pseudohallucinations in the dark and on walls - DEFINITELY HPPD note: clonazepam makes them less noticeable and not dance around.

 

The rest of my symptoms are mild and not so bothersome so I won't list them to try to keep this post short.

 

In conclusion I'm about 3.5 months in and I feel confident that I will recover and it will just take time and patients. I'm finally learning to accept it and regaining control of my life.

I ordered the Ashitaba and have been taking a teaspoon daily in my morning HPPD meal replacement smoothie. My symptoms seem to be getting a little bit better but Idk if its the lions mane, ashitaba, noopept, klonopin or just time.

hey man, your symptoms sound exactly the same as mine, particularly with the HPPD only being in the dark/on blank walls (I get real faint blue tie dye shit movin around), lemme know how you go with it as im very slowly improving being on an SNRI. I'm yet to start taking lions mane etc.

256, until you remove Klonopin from the equation, you will have no idea if those other things are doing anything, or even if you are getting better.

 

Klonopin masks HPPD symptoms, but is simply not a long term solution. I would taper down and see where you are at.
