I had to custom order some. They gave me an ETA of 30 days so they can work out the bugs. I have no problem with this, as I would like a pure product more than I would a fast, dirty one. all the other nootropics should be in by 7-15 days.

I've seen these compounds other places, but was really never very interested in them. Which one(s) would you experienced guys recommend for a noonewbie to try? I'd like something that just gives an enhanced feeling of well-being. Nothing too hardcore and I'm not interested in a narcotic affect. Just a simple mood lifter. Any recommendations?

none of these will give you a narcotic affect in any way. no recreational drug value at all. don't be scared. my personal philosophy with nootropics is less is better and try to stay with herbals rather than synthetic chemicals. for a newbie like you, i recommend Rhodiola Rosea, Piracetam, Vinpo, and chocamine. try it, you'll luv it!Originally Posted by diamonddave

Anything to make me think quicker and add focus?
Have to take the LSAT October 2nd, and each point is a battle
Mainly reasoning stuff where you have to keep a bunch of stuff on a complex timeline straight in your head, evaluate causal relationships, etc.

Rhodila is supposed to be fantastic in the right doses. Some people have claimed they use a high does of it instead of SSRI's (ant-depressants).Originally Posted by diamonddave

I've tried both ways and find that when I frontload, I go through a foggy phase then have to reduce in order to get any cognitive enhancement. These drugs definitely work but take weeks to really get rolling. You also have to take them religiously at first.
DiamondDave - you are seemingly looking for something to aid with anxiety? At least that's the way that I took your comment. If so, Phenibut works wonders for that. But do not take it for a prolonged period or overdose it. The desired effects will wear off and you will also have withdrawals if you do not taper off.
For anxiety/stress, take 500mg when you are feeling stressed. I just use it as a last resort and always get a good feeling of well being.

I've used Piracetam and Vinpo with choline. I really like the piracetam alot. Almost immediate effects. The most obvious outstanding effects are the vivid dreams. THese all work well and help with short term memory.

I can focus and concentrate better on Pira, it seems to do this without amping me up at all..in fact I'm usually calmer. Adding Vinpo really seems to quicken my thought processes even more.

Ive been doing piracetam at about 4 grams a day, but due to my schedule, I have to take it all at once. I do notice I am able to read through stuff without my mind wondering like it usually does. I personally cannot wait to try the others as I have hard times concentrating on things that I really need to.

OK..alright...here's the math
OO caps hold about 800mg when tamped. So you'll need 5 capsules

I was just being a smart ass
But I still think that 4 grams at once is a lot. I've tried it before and was pretty foggy. But hey...we are all different.

I was going to cap me some, but that got pushed to the bottom of my to-do list with a few other things. SOmetimes it gives me a headache, other times it makes me feel pretty good.Originally Posted by SJA

I usually take my 2-3 gram dose all at once. Rarely have any issues but I'll carry a choline cap with just in case.
