Piraracetam DOES have withdrawal affects: as you guys acknowledge, piracetam increases cerebral bloodflow and glucose metabolism (Lets call this CBF). Thing is, CBF is tightly regulated. piracetam can help increase CBF for a while, and this helps form new connections and practice focus BUT! over time CBF normalizes and the body becomes dependent on this process (homeostasis).
Thus, piracetam is useful for short stints of use, but long term use has it reach a steady state, where the body expects it. (this is why people not it has less effect after time. This is also why long term or heavy users “feel stupid” after they stop.)
Having said that, I do use it. I only use it a couple to a few mornings a week, to enhance work, reading, or meditation; I use it to help me reinforce those behaviors or pathways I find laborious.
Lastly, this is all anecdote and based on personal research! so take it of leave it.
I am going to use this medicine for my studying period which requires a hard work. As you mentioned ”not to use it for a long durations”. How long is it should be maximum?
