Anybody out there using Aniracetam or other Racetam nootropics?
I'm aging and beginning to feel the effects in my mental acuity. Was curious about others' experiences.
Piracetam does work especially if you are dead tired and you need to be alert at work or school. I also use Aniracetam and Choline Bitartrate with it for enhanced focus and concentration, as my days are seriously hectic at some points. I would say Piracetam is a steady build up and it could take days to weeks for the effects to be maximized. At that point of noticeable effects, you are in the clear. Just don't forget to take it too much at that point. Most of the sources I use come from Smart Drugs for Thought and my experience with them is smooth and easy. Actually, I would like to add something here. Before my use of Piracetam and Aniracetam I was very skeptical about them, as they are dealing with the brain. I did a ton of reading on longecity, drugs-forums, and some outdated journals on Erowid. It's always a virtue to study on whatever you ingest before you take it, but I can tell you that I personally have not noticed any side effects or health issues with the use of the Racetams and the Choline of course. Hope this helps and good luck to you.
P.S. - I would strongly recommend refraining from the use of Adderall or any substance like it. The come downs suck and the side effects are horrible.
I've got some experience with Piracetam.
My most recent dosing (2008) was done with an "attack dose" of 8g at once on the first day, then one gram 3x daily, moving up to 3 grams 3x daily. I was also taking choline supplements during this, since I heard that racetams deplete choline stores.
I noticed that colors were sharper, more vibrancy to my vision, although this might be the fact that this was during the beginning of fall. I tended to be a little more relaxed, and study was a little easier to do, as in I wasn't distracted so easily and wanted to do other things. I also felt that knowledge recall was a little easier during exams, although this might be the effects of me being calmer. Although since it was a while back, I can't remember all the effects it had perfectly.
There's also an experience written on erowid, about how piracetam is good for an 'old guy', might be interesting to read. Also, erowid is another source for you to read concerning nootropics.
You want amazing truely mind bogglingly effective racetam experience either mix your own paracetam with DMAE and Aniracetam and Huperazine, take with choline and inisotol and krill or fish oil. Prepare to be astounded...
RealNZT is a prepared smart drug stack, it's a really effective incrediblely psychoactive racetam & additive supplement, tailored to the individual by the manufacturer. It's not cheap.
If you're looking for a way to maximize concentration as safely as possible, I suggest experimenting with any combination of caffeine, tyrosine, NAC, choline, macuna puriens, and modafinil for the short term. Long term, omega 3s, sunlight, and exercise will help as well.
Piracetam works!!! It can be used individually, but I find it works best in a nootropic stack. There are products now that are using Piracetam based stacks as cognitive enhancers. They have become so popular that they are being called "Adderall Alternatives," for healthy over achievers looking for the benefits of a smart drug without the connection to ADHD treatment.
I've noticed a change in the "Why did I just walk into this room?" routine when sleep deprived, or "Where did I park today?" At first the answer took a couple of seconds to come back to me, now it's almost instant.
Obviously the fix here isn't to take piracetam, but to get more sleep, but it seems to help against those effects.
I personaly like pramracitam the best. It realy gives me a clear mind on days when i need the boost. Im gonna try a few other ractetams and possibly try stacking them. I have always had memory problem and pramracitam has really helped. It hasent stopped the problem but has really helped especially at work. http://www.advancenootropics.com is where i get my supply they are pretty cheap
