Piracetam is one of the most common examples of a nootropic and was developed in the year 1964 by a Romanian chemist in Belgium, Dr. E. Giurgea. This pill is now commonly available in many countries without the need for a prescription. Though this drug was originally used to treat various neurological problems like Alzheimers, stroke, and dementia, even those who do not have these disorders benefit from Piracetam consumption. Piracetam has proven to be effective in treating these kinds of disorders and the results were often positive, but it is advised that these drugs should not be used in high dosages. Moreover piracetam comes in form of pills and powders that can be used in regular dosages to achieve the desirable benefits. Compared to the pills, the powdered form of piracetam is much cheaper and can be measured using a measuring scoop to maintain the desirable amount of dosage everyday. The powder piracetam is very bitter in taste and can be difficult to consume, so it can be mixed with some kind of fruit juice to make it easier for consumption and the bitter taste gets masked within the sweetness of the juice.


Piracetam should be used everyday to see the results as these drugs work gradually and you cannot expect a miracle to happen within a day or two. The normal dosage of this can be found printed on the box of the medicine or your medical practitioner might advice you to follow some particular dosage amount. The regularly used dosage is around 800 to 2000mg per dose, two or three times a day. To accelerate the effects, you can initially take 3000 mg per dose for the first three days and then gradually reduce. The safer method is to consume the drug in smaller doses for a longer period of time, as it will work gradually and safely without any side effects.

1g of Choline is added to piracetam everyday to enhance the effects of the piracetam. Piracetam helps in promoting the functions of the neurotransmitters and choline replenishes the depleted neurotransmitters and restores them. When both of these chemicals are combined together they perform better and in the most effective way, otherwise piracetam may cause headaches or the effects may not be that strong as expected.
