I got somethat pretty excited about starting
I am a little confused about how to take it though..?
I have from NOW also, I was thinking to take both at breakfast and midday snack but I read that it works well as a pre workout with caffeine. So should I do 1 dose before workout with caffeine and do I need Alpha GPC at the same time or can I leave it with food? I was planning on starting with 1g x2 of Piracetam and work my way up.
Thanks for any help!

I have had a hard time sleeping the last 2 days, tired but can't sleep, can it be because I have started to take Piracetam 1,5x2 day? I also included ALCAR 1gx2 day but it can't be that right?
I have GABA, how much of that should I take before bed?

I would start by lowering the piracetam dose. Both piracetam and ALCAR used to disturb my sleep badly..so badly that I quit taking them for years. I've started back with piracetam at just a few hundred milligrams at first, then slowly ramped up in dose to 2 grams per day. No issues sleeping anymore..in fact, it seems like I sleep better.
ALCAR is a little trickier with insomnia since it jacks up acetylcholine levels. Try only taking an AM dose and keep it low at first.
It's not very scientific, I know, but I hypothesized that perhaps the reason I could not tolerate these supplements was due to being sensitive to them or some other random neurological reason. They are both pretty potent, so I reasoned that initially taking very small amounts might give the brain some time to incorporate them without all the insomnia and mind racing I used to get. Seems to have worked for me.

I tried piracetam for a month...felt absolutely nothing! I was super excited after reading all about it, but when it came down to it, nothing happened, felt no different at all. Anyone else out there have the same results? Or has anyone actually felt the crazy effects that people talk about?

I know this is old but did anyone figure out the dosage? I did a search and I cant find any definitive answers.
Also I just got the 500 gram tub and it says to take a 1.5 gram dose but neither the scoop or the serving tells me how to get that much.

The AGPC shouldn't have anything to do with it. Piracetam is a noot and they are hit or miss. Piracetam is horrible for me and puts me to sleep or just walking around like a zombie.
