My experiences with Huperzine have generally been good. It greatly enhanced my creativity and focus, I felt as if everything made sense, somewhat like what one may feel on psychedelics but milder and it was a logical sense as opposed to a spiritual sense. Everything I said and thought flowed very well and I felt like I could win an argument with anyone about anything. The recommended dose was 1-2 capsules (100mcg each) but I found that I needed to take 3 or 4 to get where I wanted to be. Something I read other people experienced that I also noticed was that though it made new concepts more comprehensible, nothing I learned on it would stay in my long term memory.
The first time I took it in pill form I took 6 at night which made me feel somewhat ill. The next morning I took 4 and a couple hours later I felt very badly again. I left school and laid in bed where I proceeded to have an experience like that of a DXM trip, but more simple, the main characteristic being that I perceived my body visually and in a psychedelic sensation in 3 different forms. One was much skinnier than I am and one was much fatter, and each had a different sort of personality all of which felt alien to me. I was removed from myself and it seemed that the me which I was observing was, not dangerous, but like something that would play slightly malicious pranks. I then proceeded to fall asleep and jolted awake from a nightmare into a half asleep half awake phase in which I was mostly incapacitated and had the very hazy but powerful hallucination of a dog running at me and jumping on me as if it was going to attack me. I then stood up very uncoordinatedly and walked around but saw many duplicates of everything in my vision and could not walk straight. I laid back down and about 30 seconds later I was able to function normally.
When I described this to my friends they all said it was pretty horrible and that I should stop fucking around but I really enjoyed it, like a roller coaster thrill, I guess because I was too incapacitated to really understand it while it was happening and the afterthought was fun.
It was pretty fun and taking too much made me feel like shit.
