I don’t have a scale at home. For a loading dose, I used 1/2 tsp assuming that was pretty close to 1200 mg. anyone have any suggestions for measuring without a scale?
Thanks for your comment. I know that a lot of people are interested in finding out the right dosage to take without having to use a measuring scale. One of the biggest problems is the imprecision of using tablespoons or teaspoons for measuring nootropic powders. A lot of things can affect the density of these powders and can throw off measurements when using a measuring spoon. You are always better off using a scale, taking pills or capsules, or using pre-measured satchets to ensure you are getting the right dosage. While it’s not as critical when using Piracetam compared to Noopept powder or Adrafinil powder, it still is worth investing in a scale to measure properly.
I take provigal for demylination due to a virus, symptoms mainly hypersonia and low alertness .
would this interact ok with this?
Also my father has Brain tumor and some cognitive decline from radiation , would this also benefit him?
Provigil and Piracetam are not known to interact. I know of several individuals who have used these together safely.
It’s best to speak to your dad’s oncologist about whether Piracetam would be safe for him as this is an area that requires a lot of personal information and expertise to make a safe determination!
Mi padre fue diagnosticado con demencia senil, hace 2 años. Puede esta droga ayudarlo a recordar y a mejorar su coordinación.?
Que dosis debo darle.?
Puedo suministrarle a mi hija de 21 años q esta en la universidad. Y en que dosis.?
I’m translating this for you in case someone can help:
My father was diagnosed with senile dementia, 2 years ago. Can this drug help him to remember and to improve his coordination. Which dose should he receive? Can I supply to my 21 year old daughter who is at the University. And in which doses?
Thanks for translating. With regards to Adriana’s father, Piracetam has been studied in patients with Senile Dementia. It’s best for you to consult with a doctor to determine whether this drug would be appropriate for him. There are a lot of factors that can affect whether this drug is safe or not for your father, so it’s impossible to provide recommendations without knowing more. Also, we aren’t able to provide medical advice on specific cases and can only summarize information that is available online.
I was almost determined to try Piracetam or some of the other Racetams but I have stumbled upon the following review, which made me to give up:
Would you please comment on this?
Thanks for your comment. It’s definitely true that some people experience side effects when using Piracetam, but it’s also true that many people don’t experience side effects when using Piracetam. No one can conclusively say whether you will or won’t experience negative effects when taking Piracetam. Based on research reviews, researchers believe it to be generally well tolerated and non-toxic. The reason it has become popular among nootropic users is that more people perceive a benefit than a negative effect. If it were true that the vast majority of people experience mostly negative effects, then people wouldn’t continue to use this nootropic.
Thanks for this new information about Piracetam. It has been a great help!
Piracetam pode ajudar quem tem TDAH?
I AM A PEDIATRICIAN WORKS IN THIS FIELD MORETHAN 40 YEARS,THIS PRODUCT I KNOW ABOUT IT IN EARLY 80IES MAY BE 1984 WHEN WE START TO GIVE THIS PRODUCT DAILY FOR CHILDREN WHO HAVE A SICKLE CELL DISEASE,AND AS WE GOT A GOOD RESULT FROM THE PATIENTS WHO USED THIS DRUG ON DAILY BASIS FOR ONE YEAR,AS IT REDUCES THE FORMATION OF AGGREGATION OF SICKLE CELLS THAT FORMS A SMALL THROMBI THAT OCCLUDED THE SMALL VESSELS AND CAUSES BONE INFARCTION THAT MAY LEAD TO JOINS PROBLEMS.
AT THAT TIME I READ ABOUT EFFECTS OF THIS DRUG ON MEMORY AND COGNITION,I STARTED IN 2005 BY A SMALL DOSE 400MG ONCE DAILY AT AGE OF 63 YEARS OLD,BY 2010 I DOUBLE THE DOSE TO 800MG ONCE DAILY TILL NOW(73 YEARS OLD).
THANK GOD I AM HEALTHY,ACTIVE,REGULAR GYM 4-5 TIMES A WEEK BETWEEN 1.5-2.0 HOURS.MY MEMORY IS GOOD BY HELP OF MY COGNITIVE TRAINING,STILL PRACTICE MY WORK IN THE CLINIC,BUT ONLY HALF DUTY (4 HOURS) ,TRAVELLING,MEMBER IN SOME CHARITY ORGANIZATION,LISTEN TO MUSIC,WATCHING SOME MOVIES,AND MANY OTHER ACTIVITIES,
I AM TRYING TO FOLLOW MEDIA AS IT GIVES ME A GOOD SUPPORT FROM MY RELATIVES AND FRIENDS.

MY GOOD ADVICE TO EVERY ONE WHO TRIED TO TAKE ANY DRUG,HE MUST COSULT HIS DOCTOR BEFORE .
I’m trying Piracetam with ALCAR and my first day on both together I feel much more centered and totally unstressed. I have Bipolar Disorder and am on 7 psychotropic medications. I’m taking these supplements because the side effects from the meds are horrible. I’m going to give both together a month’s trial and if I feel the same way a month from now or better, I’ll continue them for the rest of my life.
I don’t wish to tell my psychiatrist or therapist about these supplements since they are not versed in nootropics — they’re trained in medicine.
Before Piracetam, I took ALCAR 4,000MG because I underwent ECT for 2 years which destroyed my memory. The meds make it worse. So I have to take higher amounts of these supplements to get an effect.
I’ve been using Piracetam 4.8 grams per dose and ALCAR 1 gram a day. I take the Piracetam 2-3 times a day at those 4.8 gram intervals.
I also drink ABB’s Speed Stack and Turbo Tea. They are herbal sources of caffeine pretty much.
I workout 6-7 days in a row and then take a day off. The meds cause weight gain so the day off is tough because the following day I feel like I have to kill my muscles in the gym. The supplements help a great deal.
Your information is outstanding in regards to learning more about the latest advances in neuroscience.
All the best,
necesito comprar PIRACETAM , favor de decirme donde puedo conseguirlo aqui en peru..gracias
It is a great supplement when taken in conjunction with precursors to acetyl-choline. It has helped me tremendously with staying calm, but focused and has enhanced my memory recollection and verbal processing. I recommend taking it with ONNIT’s Alpha brain and Shroom Tech sport. Great stack, my friends
Thanks for your feedback – much appreciated to hear the specific details of how you are using it. It would be great to hear your opinion on other nootropics and an update on your experiences.
How do I cite this article for reference purposes for my dissertation?
It depends on which form of citations you are using. In APA style it would be as follows:
Nootriment.com (2014, January 4). Piracetam Benefits for your Brain & Side Effects. https://nootriment.com/piracetam/.
Esse remédio é ótimo, ele me ajuda a compreender muito melhor as matérias , e faz com que eu tenha mais facilidade com cálculos, e realmente ajuda a melhorar a memoria.
the Focus is lower than adderall and way better as far as everything else.
please not lower focus is good as far as being able to social and have a conversation, if you ever had adderall you can be social because your focus is way to high.
this is the type of drug you could take every day
Is piracetam good for Recovery of brain in Paralysis stroke Patient.
Thanks for your question. There have been some studies that have examined the effects of Piracetam on recovery after a stroke. Data from studies has been mixed. I would recommend you to check out this meta-review: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27236454
“Piracetam plays a limited role in the rehabilitation of overall language impairment and only benefits written language ability at the end of trials. Its effect on overall linguistic level and written language tends to emerge within a short period and declines thereafter.”
Here is another meta-review that is worth looking at: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10836617
“The evidence from this review does not support routine administration of piracetam in patients with acute ischemic stroke; however, since a possible beneficial effect cannot completely be ruled out, further controlled trials are warranted.”
Can I use Pirecetam with METH (methamphetamine)? Erection problem occurs when taking METH alone; will pirecetam help to remain erection ok?
Use of Piracetam with Methamphetamine or any other controlled substances is not recommended. Recreational drug use can have a number of side effects and it is unlikely that use of Piracetam would minimize these side effects or have benefits for erectile function in this instance. You would be advised to stop taking Methamphetamine so that you do not experience the side effects.
My father experienced brain hemorrhage in a year ago, and now he is hemiplegia; last CT scan show no bleeding in brain. Will this medicine suit to my dad ?
Thanks for your question and I’m sorry to hear about your dad. We unfortunately can’t provide guidance on specific medical conditions. Piracetam hasn’t been approved in the United States for the treatment of medical conditions. The best thing to do would be to speak to a licensed physician for their recommendations. :)
Transcendental y muy objetivo el estudio . Desde luego, cada quien inmerso en su sabiduría, tendrá su propia percepción. Y a título personal lo utilizaré antes de, para que nunca llegué el después de. Gracias por tan invaluable y muy seguramente, insuperable información científica que es el paradigma del deber ser .
Awesome! I was trying to get my hands on Piracetam but wasn’t sure yet, great post loved the fact that it was so long and answered all my questions.
