And memory is great. Two weeks ago a couple of computers were accidentally shut down, and the person with the passwords was on vacation and couldn't be reached. I remembered the passwords that I had not seen for 3.5 years and restarted the computers. Dozens of things like that has happened to me the last few months since I have used aniracetam.
My personal experiences with ani are quite good.

I see some more e-tailers have started carrying noopept. Will have to try this eventually. Ani has been decent for me though nothing to write home about.

What are these mellowing noops that's you talk of? I wouldn't mind trying them in the evening.

That a great night time stack. I sleep like a dead man on it and wake up refreshed.

Do you guys only take Magnesium Threonate at night?
10-13-2012, 11:01 AM
You can take it in the day as well. The Jarrow Formula's MagMind brand recommends one capsule in the AM and 2 in the PM, but it can be taken whenever realistically. 3 caps before bed is awesome for me.

I recently added Bacopa to my Alpha-GPC and Ani stack with what could only be described as kick ass results. Ani and GPC have proven to be great for my mild anxiety and clears my mind to think in a more rational manner and collect thoughts. As I have mentioned in the past, for events that anxiety may be peaking, like speaking at conferences or similar, then 100mg of L-theanine is in order.
This all being said- the bacopa has really been a great addition. The focus that it brings really plays along nicely with the others. The ani and GPC calm me down and let me collect thoughts, while the bacopa allows me to have great focus and analyze my surroundings and what is being said/relayed to me. I also notice an additional relaxing effect, but I haven't figured out if that is just a result of feeling very confident in my thoughts and communication, therefore creating a relaxing effect.
No need to over analyze it, though. I like it and will be keeping it around.

What would the cheapest most bare bones stack be??
10-14-2012, 10:08 PM
IMO- Aniracetam, choline bitartrate (the minimum choline source, I think), and then another that compliments the stack. This is subjective to what you are looking for. I recently fell in love with bacopa, but used to really like huperzine a and also like Rhodiola most of the time. Some like ALCAR. Oh, and l-theanine- which has been proven in scientific studies to increase alpha brain waves.
For me, all starts with a base of choline and aniracetam, and occasionally l-theanine- with bacopa now ready to christened as a regular. I personally like alpha-gpc for a choline source.
You could do this for $30-45 a month.

Just wish they made a caffeine free version. 200mg makes me jumpy and would negate the effects of the other valuable ingredients.

Cool, I may give it a shot. I wasn't aware.

feel like my stack isnt doing much for me anymore
10-26-2012, 02:36 PM
what is your stack again?
10-26-2012, 07:29 PM
I've decided to add D-Serine to my stack to see if it does anything. I ordered today, and will get it next Tuesday or Wednesday. Also ordered some GPLC and L-Theanine Powder. The GPLC will be part of my pre-workout.

Don't know why I mess with what I know works.
I ran out of Alpha GPC and Ani about 3 weeks ago after poor management of amounts that I thought I had left. Well, life has been so good for so long with it, that I think I became numb to what it felt like not on it. So I didn't reorder and ordered Focus XT to try. Big mistake. About 3 days into being off Ani and taking Focus XT, I felt my anxiety starting to creep back. So, I cut the Focus out and it settled down, but I noticed that I was getting the butterflies before big meetings because my mind was jumbled and I was thinking of worse case scenarios. In short, it really sucked. I could pull through things, but not with comfort and ease in my mind.
So, I reordered some Ani last week and it came on Monday. I started back on my 750 twice a day and by Tuesday, I literally felt a wave of relief. Here it is Thursday and I simply am at ease again. Clear thinking, rational thoughts, and focused in a relaxed way.
I won't make this mistake a third time (I did this once before). There is no question in my mind that Ani is one of the best anti-anxiety supplements you can take. I would recommend it over anything else.

Can you take these supplements if you're on an antidepressant?Originally Posted by kisaj

I'm not sure and I wouldn't want to guess, to be honest with you. I think that everyone may have different needs and something that is prescribed may be done so for a reason. For me, I am always looking for an edge and do have some mild anxiety, for which my stack works wonderfully.

glad I found this thread, ive recently been alternating noopept and Demurge thoughout the week not back to back and not stacked and not on weekends, sometimes 3 sometimes 4 days a week Id have this combo.
today I added choline bitarate to help with memory etc.
to be exact 10mg of Noopept 2000 mg of choline bit. 1.5 g capped of my Cit mal ( I have a pt test in 2 weeks and have been running after work) and 3 Ergoshred.
I was dialed in and wired like a microwave, just flying through my negotiations course, felt great. by the end of class, massive headaches behind the eyes and even a bit of difficulty seeing in the dark while driving. I added another 1.5 of Bit and cit mal after class at 3pm to run for a bit headache is kind of still here.
I know there is a **** ton of variables but can choline cause headaches? I have not had them prior to adding and all that I have read says choline could reduce

So can we safely say that Noopept combines all the positive effects of racetams into one supplement at a much smaller dose?
12-05-2012, 05:51 PM
No, because some people do not have positive reactions to Noopept, but they will with individual racetams.
12-05-2012, 07:58 PM
Eh, kinda sorta. Some people even question whether noopept is even a racetam. I'm not versed enough in chemical structure to say yeah or nay. The dosing is much smaller though. For me, the effects feel like an amped up phenylpiracetam with an edgy component.

I wouldn't bother with l-dopa as it's not the best thing for you. Try acetyl-l-tyrosine instead if you're looking to bump up dopamine safely. DLPA, with B6 and a gram of C is my preference. Definite mood lift. Also, I only take ALCAR or 500 mgs citicholine with my 10mg dose of noopept and never get a headache. Noopept is more of a peptide and combines well with aniracetam and an EFA. Try it and thank me later. :-)
12-09-2012, 10:47 PM
Whats are DLPA and EFA? I know about racetams but i havent ventured into any other noots, how much ani should I combine with the noopept? I thought about noopept and ani but I thought it would be overkill. I tried Pira for a few weeks and it didnt do much for me but give a weird tunnelvision for the first 45 minutes and lucid dreams.
12-10-2012, 07:26 AM
DLPA is DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA). Google it. It works good for a mood lift and chronic aches/pain. I take my aniracetam (200 cps of 750mg), with ALCAR in the morning and a couple hours later use Noopept with 250-500mgs of Alpha-GPC as my choline source. I try to limit my choline to that each day except what I'm getting in food as it tends to interfere with sleep for me if I take too much. You want to take just enough to not get a headache from the racetams but not that much where choline interferes with sleep and especially not more if it's the choline giving you the headache. But once you become more aware of what your brain can take, it's not a problem to combine 1500-1600mgs of Aniracetam with ALCAR or Alpha-GPC and 10mgs Noopept. I don't take any Nootropics beyond 2:30pm unless it's the weekend. I need to function at a higher level during work and the rest is my workout and family/friends.
