I've done some experimenting with Aniracetam and Noopept. The Noopept made me feel woozy, emotionless, and sort of like a psycho (in the weirdo sense, not in the serial killer sense). I swore that I'd never use that stuff again, and contemplated throwing it out, but for some reason I kept it.
After learning how sensitive I am to Aniracetam, I dropped my dose of Aniracetam to ~100mg. This got me to thinking that maybe my hate for Noopept was because it is just so powerful that I can't take much. After all, my complaints were in line with anyone's complaints when they OD on it, although I was only taking 10mg. So, what if I dropped my intake to a laughable amount? Like a little speck in my hand? Well, that's what I am doing.
I am currently taking Noopept measured by estimate-counting the grains. In all honesty, I am eyeballing it, but if I had to quantify the amount, I might guess around 10 grains. It might amount to around 1mg or less. Instinctively, I want to say that it's too small of an amount to do anything, but I can taste the strong flavor when I take it, even in that small amount, so I figure it must have some potency.
The results have been good so far. I do not feel crazy or psycho, and at times I have felt calmer and more willing to deal with the craziness of life without getting stressed out over it. This morning, I took my laughably small dose before having caffeine, and I felt awoken before the coffee even finished brewing. Don't get me wrong, I still drank the coffee. I mean, who am I to waste perfectly good coffee? But I don't think I needed it.
Yesterday, I took slightly more than a small amount, and I felt more irritable, and had a memory hole moment. I saw something in the fridge, went back to get it out a minute later and couldn't find it. It turned out that I already had gotten it out of the fridge and had no recollection of doing so, but there it was, on the counter top. So, too much is bad for me.
So, aside from that, it's been a good run on Noopept, as long as I take it at a low dose. I will continue and post anything interesting that I find.
Has anyone else tried this approach? Or am I the only one who needs to? I think I'm in the minority with my sensitivity to it. The bright side is that at the rate I'm going, my Noopept should last me until I'm around 400 years old.
As a side-note, I'm off Aniracetam because it makes my face puffy, itchy, and delivers unreliable and unpredictable brain behavior. So, it wasn't my thing.
Here is the amount that I'm taking, twice per day: https://copy.com/UwwwPgbvbI64b78O
