How does Deanol work?

Deanol is a precursor to the chemical choline and might increase the production of acetylcholine.

Are there safety concerns?

Deanol seems to be safe for most people when taken by mouth or applied to the skin.

When taken by mouth, deanol can cause constipation, itching, headache, drowsiness, insomnia, overstimulation, vivid dreams, confusion, depression, increased blood pressure, an increase in schizophrenia symptoms, and unwanted movements of the face and mouth.

Do not use deanol if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have schizophrenia.
  • You have depression.
  • You have a seizure disorder.
