Aniracetam or Piracetam
- 12-07-2012, 05:40 AM
Piracetam with Focus XT works well for me. I've using half a scoop of Focus XT and 2 grams of Piractem over the last couple of weeks and I've noticed my cognition has improved. I'm able to capture and process concepts quicker and with less effort. Aniracetam was less consistent for me - sometimes my verbal fluency would increase and I would be on point speaking to people. Other times it would leave me a little dazed - but when it worked it was impressive.

Aniracetam > Piracetam per my use. I noticed absolutely nothing from the latter, at various doses as well as with/without choline.GENOMYX ~ Where Evolution Begins

Hi all, first time posting and had a question regarding the choline use... do nootropics and choline just compliment each other well, or does the choline counteract some sort of effect caused by the noots?

The explanation I keep reading is that racetams ramp up choline use in the brain and "use them up" faster. If you are deficient in choline, as many people are, then you will get side effects like foggy thinking, headaches, sleep disturbances etc.
The hard part about dosing is that you won't know what, if any, level of choline dosing you need until you basically feel out the effects.

When I first started taking Noots a couple years ago, I tried it without any extra Choline and found that I had pounding ones on Ani, but not on Piracetam or Oxiracetam. I ended up preferring Ani for my intended purposes and started with a low 250 mg Choline Bitrate source. It helped the headaches, but I found that I had much better effects from Alpha-GPC.
Personally, I always believe in starting low and ramping up, rather than overloading and trying to back down.

Piracetam is indeed strong, and works well both for preworkout or just regular nuero-enhancement

They both do very different things in terms of effects, IMO. For myself I found Aniracetam to be excellent for communication, logical reasoning, focus and as an antidepressant/anxiliotic. This is primarily due to the receptors it effects: Dopamine D2, Serotonin 5ht2a and Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. It's the closest thing, focus wise, to Adderall out there. Piracetam on the other hand did nothing for me in terms of focus, motivation and logical thinking. It does however haves profound effect on creativity and emotional processing. the effects of Aniracetam only last roughly 2 hours for me so reposing became an issue, piracetam lasted closer to 5-6 hours. Alpha-GPC was my choline source of choice for either one.

I am one of the lucky ones in that the effects of Ani last about 5-6 hours for me. Primary recall and logical thinking peak from 1-3 hours and then the anxiolytic effect is left for the remainder. I found that being on it for the length of time that I have, I can skip a day or 2 and still have the anxiolytic feeling.
