Great sleep aid!
I’ve been using Huperzine A for myasthenia gravis for nearly a month now. I’ve found it to work FAR better than the Mestinon I was told to take! It lasts 3-4 times as long (I’m a rapid metabolizer), offers more symptom control, and wears off gently, unlike the RX. It’s also helped significantly with my cognitive impairment.
