My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD many years ago and I was against medicating her. My husband who is very well educated on natural supplements gave my daughter DMAE along with Pantothenic Acid (Vit B5) and as far as I am concerned it works better than any ADD - ADHD drug on the market. You need the Vit B5 for the DMAE to convert in the brain. She is 16 now and takes 3 X DMAE 250mg caps and 3 X Pantothenic Acid 500mg caps. Everyone can tell when she hasn't taken her vits !!

BEWARE - this product gave me a migraine which lasted 3 days. I researched the recommended dose, and found that studies suggest using less than HALF the recommended dose on the bottle.

Just got the side effects after one week of use; slight headache and stiffness around head and shoulders. I might try halving the dose somehow..don't know.

Due to an illness, I have a hard time focusing and I have a hard time with memory so I thought I'd try this. I finished more than half the bottle and I saw no difference on the days I took the pills and the days I didn't. Plus, I really didn't notice any difference to my skin. Then I read that you should only take DMAE on the days you need it, not as a daily supplement, and since I saw no really help, I just called it quits for this one. I almost always start a product with the Now Foods brand cause I trust them cause I rarely get side effects from their products but I find that half the time their products do nothing for me but if I switch to another brand the supplement/vitamin really helps. So this may be one of the times, Now Foods isn't working for me.

I have had to return this product as it is not allowed into NZ without a doctor's prescription.

I ordered because it was recommanded to me and a lot of positive comment. But when I read the low rated one, I found out that it was not recommended for schizophrenia. I use NAC in the same brand, very safe and recommended for this illness. I will give it propably to a friend

I took this to find something to keep me alert and focused, but after taking just 1 pill I find that my motor control is a bit off and my mind works a little slower than I am used to. I do feel very sleepy after taking this and sort of spaced out. My thoughts are moving at a very slow pace, and the words are not coming to me as quickly as they used to. I am known to be an extremely fast thinker, and I speak at a pace of my thoughts.. meaning I basically run with my thoughts. But the way this medication numbs my brain is unbelievable. My review is to warn others of this potential side effect. I am having a lot of difficulties right now with word selection. I hope the effect will wear out. As the medication metabolizes.

I was taking this supplement for 3 weeks and from the second week I started noticing that my migraine which used to suffer from approximately once per two months, has become more frequent. In 3 weeks I had 3 major migraine attacks and during the last week I had a headache everyday! I tried to figure out if anything has changed in my everyday routine and what is the reason for these frequent and horribly strong migraines and I realised that taking this supplement was the only thing that has changed. I rushed to the Internet to see if it has any side effects and indeed one of the side effects of it is migraine. Except that I've notices that I started to develop pimples on my face and chest. Since I've not noticed ANY positive effects I've stopped taking this supplement immediately. The pimples are fading and since then I had not have any headaches. There many supplements on the market that work well on memory , concentration and skin. So I would not advise you taking the risk.

Purchased as a choline source. Doesn't seem to have much effect on the 2pm low-energy state that raw eggs often ameliorate.

Got it for age spots but did not notice any reduction in the brown spots after two years of taking it. Quit buying it. Will go to a skin specialist to use IPL light treatment which is supposed to be the best method and very fast, one hour.
