    Hi. I reacted badly to tiny doses of l carnitine fumurate and to acetyl carnitine. Wired and ill. Coq10 had a similar effect.

    I've figured out that it is both L-carnitine and DHEA affecting sleep, but they both do help exercise, and even better in combination. So today I've opened the capsules and just taken about a quarter of each, so maybe 1mg+ of DHEA and 250mg l-carnitine fumarate. Got to find the right amount.

    Hope you find the right amount. I take Carniclear liquid, easy to take any dose. I take 7 keto DHEA also.

    I will try and remember this thread when I start the Acetyl L Carnitine I got :( I thought I took Acetyl L Carnitine before without problems. A lot of supplements and meds give me insomnia.

    Hi little bluestem, I only just noticed your question, sorry I didn't answer earlier.
    I was taking N-acetyl Carnitine.

    I have had no problems taking the Acetyl L-Carnitine. In fact it definately had helped my evening brain fog. I'm taking 400 daily with 200mg Alpha Lipoic Acid in it.
