I have been taking 2400 mgs per day for 1.5 years. I find my thinking is clearer, I am better able to focus, and my memory has improved greatly.

I started taking this supplement because I have experienced significant cognitive impairment after injuring my neck in a motor vehicle accident. I had pre-existing cognitive problems (adult ADHD) but these were managed well by standard medications. After taking lyrica for neuropathic pain, I experienced a severe cognitive decline.
