Having tried Aniracetam several times and had NO effect or benefit from it at all, I am wondering what the story is with it. I mean, if it’s stronger than piracetam, and it had no effect, then I’m not even going to waste my time with the piracetam.
As such, I’m not sure I want to waste my money on this oxiracetam either.
I’m starting to feel like this stuff is nothing more than ‘snake-oil.’
How long did you take Aniracetam or Piracetam for? Generally Piracetam needs about 2 weeks to notice effects and some say Aniracetam will take a week or more. Dosages are also important when you start out which is why some will use a mega-dose at first. It is possible that you’re a non-responder to the Racetam class in general and there are certainly others who do not feel effects when taking Aniracetam. It might be the case that a stronger Ampakine like Sunifiram would be more effective or a Racetam like Pramiracetam or Phenylpiracetam. They are more expensive though, especially for daily use. Hope that helps a bit.
Exactly , and I agree with the reply . To me it exactly took 14 days , two weeks to see the effects . I experienced improvement in my cognitive performance . Before it was hard to remind even the known names , but now I feel that Piracetam has normalized my memory . It helped my ADHD be improved and also reduced the anticholinergic side effects of try cyclic immipiramine antidepressant which my doctor has prescribed me . I practice brain train drills devised by professor Kawashima which is based on his 20 years of research on brain performances . I have added soy lecethin including phosphorylate to my regiment ( two pills a day ) hoping to reduce the fatigue which is made by depression . I have been in this way for one year and during this time my cognitive performance has been satisfactory .
Regrading Piracetam m I can say it made my cognitive performance normal .But what I am looking for to achieve my objectives and dreams
is a safe way to work with high performance just like Fereud when he was on Cocaine ! unfortunately Cocaine is destructive and illegal and hence it cannot be seen as a solution for the purpose .Is Semax can be considered as the solution ? Why it is produced only in Russia and no manufacturers in other countries has not introduced it to the market yet ?
I am an older woman who has been on adderall for some years for attention deficit problems. I often add a nootropic to the mix to level mood swings caused by the adderall. I notice that several of the nootropics cause increased blood flow to the brain, and I understand the benefit… but my concern, and question .. does this increased blood flow make the possibility of a stroke more likely?
Hello and thanks for your question. I would recommend speaking to your doctor to get personalized advice on this matter. High blood pressure in the brain can increase the risk of stroke, however many of the nootropics that increase blood flow to the brain have a vasodilation effect on cerebral blood vessels which means that even though circulation is improved, blood pressure does not rise. Several nootropics like Centrophenoxine are given to stroke victims to help prevent a second stroke and it is possible they may reduce the risk of stroke in healthy individuals as well. There is limited research on the Racetams and the risk of stroke, but nothing I have read so far would suggest a higher likelihood of stroke from these nootropics.
I got a bottle of Aniracetam in 750 mg dose capsules. The bottle dosage suggested to take 1-2 twice a day. I don’t know that I took more than 2 per day, but that’s because I didn’t know too much about it and was more concerned about bad side-effects than benefits.
There’s only about 6 capsules remaining from a bottle of 60. I don’t know, maybe I didn’t take it for long enough to have an effect.
Also, I don’t know anything about the company (Smart Drugs for Thought).
For all I know, they filled the capsules with flour.
Or, as you said, maybe I just don’t respond to this product.
Right now I’m trying some alpha-gpc to see if that will help. Do you know if aniracetam can be safely stacked with alpha gpc (300 mg) ?
How about stacking alpha-gpc with one of the other racetams you suggested?
Piracetam is working for me now. The first week consisted of nothing but brain fog which caused me to feel more anxious. I took a break from it for about a week and gave it another go. This time I used a far less than recommended dose. I’m talking about maybe 200 mg. Now it seems to calm my mind and increase my concentration more. Not to a huge amount but I seem to find that getting in the zone is easier than before. One benefit that I really find helpful is more fluid speech. I’m usually tripping over my words in a conversation with people I don’t know that well but not so much anymore while taking this. Also on another note, I find that taking Choline at the same time gives me headaches. So I take Choline a few hours after I take the Piracetam without getting the headaches. Question that I have for the Admin is if some people require much less amounts due to sensitivity like I experience?
Thanks for your comments! Great to hear your review.
There is definitely a wide range of sensitivity when it comes to combining Choline and Piracetam. Some people consistently get headaches unless they combine the two while others might only get headaches if they take them at the same time like you. There haven’t been any formal studies into this, but the anecdotal reports suggest that choline sensitivity varies considerably. Some have used the phrase “Choline dominant” to explain individuals who don’t need the added choline when using Racetam nootropics. It can also depend on what form you are using – some may only get headaches when taking Alpha Glycerylphosphorylcholine but might not get the same reaction if they take Choline bitartrate or Citicoline.
Once beginning to take any of these products will they become a daily ongoing need or can a person succeed in improving symptoms to a point of not needing to continue taking the medication?Or do the symptoms return after discontinued use of the medication?
can anyone answer here please???
I think I have poor circulation to the brain – I am 65 male, reason being – difficulty speaking in very cold weather also insomnia. Can I try one of the acetams if so which one please? From UK
Mr L Badman
Piracetam has been observed to increase oxygen and glucose consumption to the brain. Vinpocetine is another nootropic that has a cerebrovasodilation effect to increase circulation in the brain. Speak to your doctor before trying any supplements or nootropics!
I haven’t tried any smart drugs except for modafinil and was looking for a nootropic that may compare to modafinil in its effects such as increased concentration, mood enhancement etc. I’ve heard Phenibut is good, what’s your opinion on it?
The effects of Phenibut are quite opposite from Modafinil. It is more effective for relaxation and as a sleep aid. The most comparable nootropics to Modafinil would be Adrafinil or Phenylpiracetam in my opinion.
I wanted to know which is the best Nootropics.that I should take
What about pao stack for newbie
pao stack + Alpha gpc + L-theanine + Caffeine
