"I'd feel trapped if I couldn't CTB at any time."
Feb 15, 2019
276

Twelve patients with "brain fog" including difficulties in executive functions were treated with guanfacine (1mg, PO bedtime for the first month, increased to 2mg after 1 month, if well-tolerated) and 600 mg NAC daily. Guanfacine+NAC improved cognitive abilities in eight of the twelve patients; four patients discontinued therapy, two for unspecified reasons and two due to hypotension and/or dizziness, common side effects of guanfacine. Those who stayed on guanfacine+NAC reported improved working memory, concentration, and executive functions, including a resumption of normal workloads. One patient briefly stopped taking guanfacine due to a hypotensive episode and reported a return of cognitive deficits that abated with resumed guanfacine treatment.
For those considering CTB due to LC give this treatment a try beforehand and see if it works.
