Question Thoughts on AChE Inhibitors/memory drugs as adjunct to stimulant?

Hi everyone,

I'd like to know if anyone has experience with using acetylcholinesterase inhibitors as an adjunct to their stimulant medication.

I have recently resumed stimulant treatment after several years unmedicated. I am currently taking Focalin IR BID which is effectively managing motivation and focus. I have noticed however that it's actually caused minor deficits in certain aspects of working memory, as well as semantic memory retrieval.

I'm wondering if an AChEI (huperzine a, aricept, etc.), or some other such memory care drug would be of benefit in offsetting these symptoms. Alternatively, are there any other classes of medications you could recommend to alleviate these side effects?

I look forward to hearing the community's responses.
