I heard good thins about piracetam for brain function, seems pretty safe too. Any experiences? Some M.E. patients tell of significant improvements in cognitive abilities from taking Piracetam. LEF explains that ‘Piracetam is a derivative of the amino acid GABA that increases the sensitivity of receptors in the brain involved in memory and learning. Piracetam is called a nootropic drug because of its ability to enhance the mind. Studies in both animals and humans have demonstrated that piracetam can improve memory, increase attention and cognition, improve spatial learning, and enhance motor mechanisms. Piracetam is used to increase intelligence, information processing ability, concentration, memory, and creativity. It has been shown to harmonize and synchronize the spheres of the brain by anchoring information within the brain. Suggested dose: Piracetam should be used in doses ranging from 1600 to 2400 mg a day taken first thing in the morning.’ Piracetam may also be a useful treatment for Myoclonic jerks and Raynaud’s phenomenon, may help improve the problem of seizure-like events following exposure to light and may also help improve vertigo caused by brain injury. Piracetam should be taken with choline if headaches occur during treatment. Some countries consider it a supplement rather than drug. This drug must be started at a very low dose and treatment must not be stopped suddenly. Expect to see effects within an hour to a few days.
