From my understanding it should not be taken in combination with some other night time remedies. Not sure which but combinations of these meds can be risky.

Thank you. Wonderful. Good to know.
Excellent memory and follow-up.

also, for us to know if something is really working we should experiment one thing at a time.

I’ve experimented with various supplements in my LD journey. Pretty much only two have really affecting my dreams, those being galantamine and wormwood. Everybody knows about galantamine already, if you can get back to sleep on it, you’re practically guaranteed a lucid party night, or at least super vivid dreams. Wormwood is more like a hallucinogenic, though, and caused an irregular / rapid heartbeat, so I quit it after a few attempts. It did give sort of “high” dreams, though.

I have some B6 (in the form of Pyridoxal 5’-Phosphate, the version of B6 that’s supposed to interfere less with sleep), and one night I took it I had epic non-lucid dreams all night long, and the next: nothing. I may experiment more with dosage (that was 33mg, generally the recommendation is 100mg for affecting dreams, but that’s starting to wander into massive dosage territory).

I think that once one develops a dream practice, and develops the ability to recall dreams, then the most important factors are overall health, brain health, and how well you develop your memory of experiences. Maintaining a strong interest in dreams, and a consistent dream journaling practice go a long way. It feels like the memories just wash over you effortlessly when you establish a consistent pattern of reaching for dream recall on every waking, and creating strong intent, and developing the feeling that dreams are very important to you.
