“This is a total dose of 4.8 grams twice a day.”
This statement is confusing. Does it mean (i) 2.4 grams taken twice a day for a total daily dose of 4.8 grams or (ii) 4.8 grams taken twice a day for a total daily dose of 9.6 grams? Since this is an article on best dosage it should be clearer.
@Dan: I can say from experience he is talking 9.6 grams a day. I used to have this amount every day for about 3 months. I even had weeks of 3×4.8g a day. Somehow I tested it on my own regardless of my fear that I would have irremediable side-effects. There were only SOME headaches but I do usually have them from time to time so I could not say if this is the cause. I found that the most apparent enhancement was in the mood of getting things done, the rest of the effects are somewhat unnoticeable until you really need them. There are two pleasant side-effects that nobody talks about or at least they do not mention it so as anybody can understand it. First of all, your body can learn to produce more choline in time, so I rarely need any choline supplements. Second, there are some increase in some kind of nerve growth factors (didn’t care enough to study more as to what kind of growth factor) so in the long term you begin to be able to concentrate longer and harder, you can easily grasp harder problems WITHOUT taking any dosage, although I recommend it from time to time. And do not undervalue the lipofuscin excretion enhancement, this is great for long time use.
Do not do it at home notice:
After saying all this, I do recommend you to NOT test anything on your body first. Read studies already done (a lot of them, and cross-reference them so they cannot lie). In the end, you are the only one who can decide what to do with the information.
How to weigh 4.8 grams is my question.
Also, I think the reason anybody speaks of 4.8g is that there are a lot of piracetam brands that sells it in pills form, with 1200mg dosage per pill. So I usually take 4 at a time for a total 4.8g.
I am a 54 yr old woman who has always had difficulty with telling a story or staying on track with conversation. I’m not handicapped in any way. In fact I work a full time job and do quite well. It’s hard for me to remember things, names and my past. It doesn’t come easy for me in casual conversation, a lot of effort to focus and engage for long periods of time.
I started taking peracetam about one month ago. I seem to find it helpful so far. My thinking seems to be clearer and sharper. My confusion is what is a good dose for me. Can anyone tell me exactly the dose I should take? I am approximately 125lbs and I also take Zolof (any contraindications with the combination?)
To check for contraindications with all your medications download the MEDSCAPE app to your phone. Inside the app theres “INTERACTION CHECKER” type in all your Rx Medications and other Supplements you are taking to make sure that there are no contraindications.
Again, the steps are:
1.) download Medscape App on your phone
2.) under “Interaction Checker” type in all your drugs
3.) You may now check if any has contraindications!
Hope it helps!
