Personally I'm not in a position to order medication at this point in my life, but even if I was I'm not sure I would. Partly out of principal, because to me it takes away from the journey of seeking and finding that lucid dream experience and developing your skills to do it naturally, but moreso because I'm not sure if it's worth the money and I'm afraid of what sideeffects it may have...

It could just act via the placebo effect, i.e. only working because you expect it to. Apparently, with lucid dreaming, what you expect is what you get.

I wouldn't want to take a pill to have a LD... I would rather master it without artificial enhancement smile

And they are probably just made of corn starch anyway... a placebo like mentioned above.

I have ordered some LD pills with Galantamine (acetylcholinesterase inhibitor) in them. They work.




I agree that it's not recommended to resort to using drugs to inhance dreams, since drugs are impure, and tend to decay your soul. But the lucidity institute at STanford has been experimenting with galantamine for years.


the couple of times I have taken them, it has been 4am on a weekend, and I've had crazy dreams. They don't help recall, but they do increase dream activity.

One time I took 2 pills, and i couldn't sleep for hours....

Last I heard, The Lucidity Institute (LaBerge & Co.) were working on a pill that acts as a acetlycholine booster. This would enhance the vividness of your perception during REM to make it more likely for you to realize a dream sign.

I have no idea what they are doing with it now.

i have tried the one from Brilliant Dreams. It works very well. I have much better dream recall, more dreams...
I must notice that this is the first thing that actually worked for me. I have tried everything from NovaDreamer, all kind of different audio CD (Bradley Thompson and Monroe Institute included), I went to hypnosis, tried all kind of drugs (including Calea, Salvia...)...
Now I have ordered also Lucid Dreamer...
Wish me luck smile

Btw... I am considering 2 buy DreamMaker. I have read what was written about it. I must check first if Bruce has really new model or he is just ....

i read recently that vitamin B-6 increases the vividness of dreams. I have been taking it for 3 nights now and 2 out of 3 nights i had unusally vivid dreams.

I don't think that it would be very smart to take these. It may make the dreams that you have when you don't take them to seem stale and bland. And you may become dependent on them to have a LD. Just my advise though! After all, I am going to go into the profession of a pharmacist when I get out of college. smile

It isn't just B-6, there are many other factors that increase such feelings.:

5-HTP
Omega-3(Although nobody else has tried this, Worked for me though.)
As far as this goes though, I still stress that I am not willing to take a man-made drug that has effects my dreaming world . Omega-3 is simply a compound found in animal fats, and you can read up on it if you want. smile

Lucid dream "pill"
PostPosted: Mon 24 Nov, 2008  Reply with quote

When searching google for 'lucid dreams' this "Lucid pill" comes up.

Now i dont think i can link it, but this is what it says it does;

Dramatically Enhances Dream Vividness - Individuals report they experience very interesting and vivid dreams!4
INDUCE VIVID, LUCID DREAM STATES WITH EXCEPTIONAL CLARITY

Shortens REM Sleep (dreaming) Latency - The time from sleep onset to the first occurrence of REM sleep.
YOU START DREAMING SOONER

Increases REM Density - The ratio of time spent dreaming to total amount of time spent asleep.
YOU DREAM MORE EACH NIGHT

Reduces Slow Wave Sleep - Reduce very deep, non-dreaming sleep3 -Another positive indicator for
INCREASED TIME SPENT DREAMING

Improves Memory & Cognitive Ability - Clinically proven to improve memory and recall.
IMPROVED DREAM RECALL


Quite biased im sure tounge2 But i just want to know if it would be worth looking into or whether its just a scam. Cause to me it sounds like an LDers dream-come-true


What are your thoughts on it?

Thankyou ^^
