Are there risks associated with DMAE? Has it been shown to raise blood pressure or cause insomnia?

Are you talking about oral or topical use?

Topical use. I've read that there are some side effects to its use, although the articles were discussing taking it orally. It used to be prescribed for hyperactivity?

As many substances, DMAE may cause skin irritation in some people. With common DMAE products significant side effects are uncommon. Of course, if one decides to use DMAE as pure base (bad idea -- it is too alkaline) as opposed to typically used pH neutral salt, then some skin damage is possible.
