Any updates from the people in this thread who were trying out carnitine (acetyl/non-acetyl)? Does it help in the short/long-term?

 

I've been taking it daily now since the start of this thread and it does help in the long term. Most of my complaints with Narcolepsy is the fatigue. Some days It wins, but most days now are highly manageable.

That's good to hear. Thanks for letting me know. Do you take acetyl-l-carnitine or just l-carnitine (or fumarate)? I wonder if the non-acetyl form reaches the brain or not..

Acetyl. Definitely a difference. Also, some days I do forget to take it  --- its fine. As long as I am mostly consistent with it I've realized.

Acetyl is for cognitive function where non acetyl is for physical.  A lot of people use the non acetyl form before workouts.  Just got some acetyl myself to give a try!
