Did you know:
"Galantamine has been used for decades in Eastern Europe and Russia for the treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease and various other memory impairments, in particular those of vascular origin. In the US, it is FDA approved for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
*Some people who practice lucid dream (LD) or out-of-body experience (OBE) use galantamine to increase their odds to achieve LD or OBE. Galantamine used with Alpha-GPC can dramatically increase one's odds of becoming lucid and increase memory consolidation during dreaming.
*Galantamine has been used as a sleep aid, Galantamine has been anecdotally described both to help people fall asleep and increasing the quality of sleep once someone falls asleep.
*Along with other cholinergics or acetylcholinesterase inhibitors such as Huperzine A, galantamine also has been used as nootropic or "brain enhancer" to enhance memory in brain-damaged adults" From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Naturally derived Galantamine is an OTC (Over The Counter) supplement- no prescription needed in the USA.
