1 scoop of focus XT plus 3-4 grams of piracetam and then slowly sip a little more caff(coffee,energy drink,green tea,etc..) is probably one of if not my favorite stack for learning,studying,researching, etc..

One of my favorite "stacks", back in 2004-5, was to take a 1/2 teaspoon and pour the following on my tongue, chased with a swig of orange juice before going to work:
Along with a couple caps of ashwagandha.
This would be on an empty stomach in the morning. On my commute in, I'd sip on a bottle of Mt. Dew Code Red. Man, I'd feel a little euphoric by the time I got in, and I'd have focus and enthusiastic energy for at least a solid 3 hours.
I'm not sure how that impacted immediate cognition, as this was after I decided I was done with school, but it was around this time that I began to have success memorizing certain things. At the time, I got myself to memorize my check card number, expiration and security code, as well as the numbers of a few local pizza places (before online ordering became vogue).
Nothing has made me more razor-sharp focused than adderall, but that's not practical. However, when I briefly used that, it was more of a short-term memory prep, as it was only used on the day of mid-terms or finals.
DS Craze, with which I have been recently acquainted, has really enabled me with a focused, can-do mindset. After I do my morning exercise, it's still working up to 4-5 hours later, and I'm keeping myself on task. I'm willing to bet that if I had something like Craze back in '98-00, I'd have actually gotten a degree.
As far as chillin' / relaxin', I am of no help. Anything I take to increase brainpower, focus, or memory, just makes me either quiet, "squinty" (like the term Booth calls the lab people on the show, 'Bones'), or maybe a little bit happy or too enthusiastic. This is great for the job, where people rely on me to come through, but in the social realm, it's of no value. I don't suddenly become a brilliant orator like all the fictional kids on Dawson's Creek, nor do I feel totally at ease or put people at ease. I'm better off just having a nice, cold stout or porter, and putting my feet up.

EndoAMP is just great all around -- cortisol, memory, mood etc....
AndroDrive will just increase your mood even more with dhea and preg for your brain,

I just finished my finals last week and I had many last night study sessions. My go to study/focus supps were: Huperzine A, Adrena G, PLCAR, and sometimes Focus XT for the additional kick.

Again, you shouldn't expect it to alter your mood very much, which makes it hard to notice it's effects unless you're neurotic, self-analyzing and/or somewhat introverted. This is a compound that directly effects cognition for the most part, whereas something like adderall seems to effect cognition but it exerts it's influence indirectly by influencing mood.
Of course qualifying drugs in terms of mood is subjective and not exactly scientific, so it's best to just try it out first hand.

I take San dr feel good which has a good blend of nootropics, but on top of that I take choline, alcar and vinpocetine which I definitely notice a difference with. I've been here on my phone for 3 hours reading about nootropics and haven't gotten distracted yet a little bit of caffeine can be great too, and I always chew a little nicotine gum during tests. If your an ex smoker (like me) be careful with that one.
I'm going to add piracetam and pramiracetam next and see what that does. I'm curious about ashwagandha cut don't know enough about it to give it a try, but certain studies suggest it could make me feel awesome
02-26-2012, 10:43 PM
anyone have any thoughts on pramiracetam? I have about 30G on hand just not sure about dosing it effectively.

I've been researching a lot on nootropics and my interest is peaked. I've always been a very competitive person academically and professionally and I'm in a very extensive energy program in Texas with two majors and a minor, as well as nearly a minor in two different languages. I have noticed as I've grown older and wiser(and with quite a few dumbass moments along the way) that while blessed with an ability to ascertain solutions quickly given abstract and convoluted inputs, my thoughts are quite often too rapid and when not putting my mind to use with work they are quite often a jumbled blurry mess. An analogy that'd probably best describe it would be standing alongside a road as an aircraft passed by at mach3, a fast and incredibly efficient machine but if you were asked to describe what it looked like you would be clueless. And therein lies my dilemma. I've read about nootropics pretty extensively and I was wondering about their effect on possible moderate OCD, which I believe is the root of my problem. A gift academically but a pain in the ass in alot of aspects of my life. Which brings me to what you guys would recommend as I know there are lot of smart bro's on this forum.
Here's what I was thinking:
Pretty basic stack I think. This mainly came from the nootropic guide here on AM. I was mainly curious if users of this combination that suffered from mild OCD reaped any benefit from this stack. Also, I plan on getting everything I can from Nutraplanet but it seems like they are missing two of the ingredients. I know sourcing usually isn't permitted here for products that Nutraplanet carries, but since they are out/not carrying them I didn't think it'd be unquestionable to ask.
Edit: I also seem to suffer from a mild form of social anxiety which is just annoying and pisses me off. It is completely irrational and as someone who takes pride in being logical it's a hindrance with absolutely no basis for it. I know there's no reason to have anxiety in some social situations but yet there it is. f these products could help me in this aspect alone then they'd be worth it for me.
Thanks in advance

That being said, I am very good at faking it, but recently found a stack that lets me completely dominate my meetings. I mean, to the point that I am getting complimented on my handling of CIO/CTO level people. Obviously, intense preparation is always key, but I find that if my mind is firing quickly and clearly, that is just about as important.
I've been taking:
125 mg rhodiola rosea
100 mg l-theanine
600 mg Alpha-gpc
400 mg phosphatidylserine (recently picked up some endoamp, which has 600mg Alpha-gpc and 800mg PS)
This is my magic elixir, but I'll tell you, the main difference maker was the rhodiola. It took me 5 different brands before I found two that I really like and it took about 10 days to get the full effect, but now, I can't live without it. 15 minutes after I take it, I literally feel my mind just clear up and lose any distractions about stupid things that would pop into my head to interfere with my thought process. It's like not caring, yet caring more about what you need to - if that makes any sense.

For some reason, the potency in the gaia 120mg seemed way more than in others 300mg+ caps.
