One cannot deny that lucid dreaming pills give you the experience you long for-a lucid dream. However, seasoned practitioners would not actually recommend such pills. They would recommend the safer and lasting techniques of meditation, relaxation, enhanced dream recall, and others.
Pills such as Galantamine and Choline can actually give you some real-as-life dreams or lucid dreams. At the same time, you cannot simply take lucid dreaming pills and expect to get an LD. These pills can be compared to weight loss pills. The weight loss pills alone don’t work; they function only in combination with healthy eating and an exercise regime. Similarly, lucid dreaming pills in combination with meditation, relaxation, and better dream recall will give you a faster LD experience.
Choline is an amino acid that is commonly found in potatoes and bananas. When ingested, the brain converts Choline into Acetylcholine; and this leads to enhanced dream recall and lucid dreaming.
Choline, however, has a few side effects such as increased body temperature, profuse sweating, loss of appetite, and nausea.
Take a Choline pill before going to bed or at midnight. Here is a word of warning-never take it continuously. You can take it for a few days to satiate your desire for a lucid dream, but not more than that.
Galantamine is commonly used in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative disease that wrecks long-term as well as short-term memory.
The ancient Greeks first discovered this wonder drug more than 30 centuries back. The Chinese used it to enhance memory too. Galantamine not only improves memory during the day, but also enhances dream recall at night.
A number of brands now offer lucid dreaming pills containing Galantamine, which has been extracted from Daffodils and Red Spider Lilies.
Although Galantamine is a natural medication for enhancing dream recall, it does give some nasty side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, lack of appetite, weight loss, sleep paralysis, and micro awakenings.
Some lucid dreaming pills contain a combination of Choline and Galantamine. But never take these pills continuously. Take them only as and when you need them.
LD pills do work. But owing to their side effects, they are not really recommended. If you are in a hurry and want to get a lucid dreaming experience in the shortest possible time, take these pills. But don’t take them before having a chat with your medical advisor. Even if you take them, don’t take them for long periods of time. The best lucid dreaming techniques are the age-old, proven, tested, safe, and drug-free methods.
