Description

Summary

Phenylpiracetam has the same cognitive and physical enhancing benefits as piracetam, but it is believed to be 30-60 times more potent. [29]

Benefits and Effects

Boosting Brain Functions

In studies of humans, year-long phenylpiracetam treatments helped stroke patients regain normal brain activity. [4] A month of phenylpiracetam treatment also improved memory and cognition in human brain disease patients. [6]

Improving Memory

Phenylpiracetam may improve memory recollection by increasing dopamine receptors in the brain. [6] Studies on humans with chronic fatigue have yielded similar results. [7] [1]

Decreasing Anxiety and Depression

A month of phenylpiracetam treatment reduced anxiety and depression in human patients suffering from brain damage. [5] In another study, patients with comorbid heart disease, anxiety and depressive disorders noticed a reduction in psychological symptoms over 12 weeks of treatment; however, the effectiveness of the drug seemed to diminish after 4-8 weeks. [9]

Managing Epilepsy and Seizures

In a study of 31 epilepsy patients, combining phenylpiracetam with a traditional anti-seizure drug for two months prevented seizures better than the other medication alone. [10]

Increasing Energy

A large scale study of 1,170 individuals with chronic ischemia and fatigue syndrome experienced a significant reduction in symptoms after a month of phenylpiracetam treatment. [11]

Preventing Weight Gain

In addition to lowering blood sugar levels, phenylpiracetam slowed weight gain in obese rats. [14]

How It Works

Phenylpiracetam works by increasing the amount of serotonin, dopamine and GABA receptors in the brain. [6] By increasing alpha and beta brain waves, phenylpiracetam also promotes focus, alertness and learning. [5]

Phenylpiracetam vs Piracetam

Phenylpiracetam and piracetam are different in that the former contains a phenyl group, which allows it to cross the blood-brain barrier. [21]

Phenylpiracetam vs Adderall

Adderall contains amphetamine and is primarily designed to treat ADHD, but some people take it for its energy accelerating effects. Do not take phenylpiracetam for ADHD treatment since it can be habit forming.

Dosage

Most users only need 100-200mg of phenylpiracetam to feel its full effects. This amount can be safely taken up to three times per day.

It is possible to acquire a tolerance to phenylpiracetam fairly quickly. [22]

Start with a lower phenylpiracetam dose and build up from there. [5] [23] Phenylpiracetam’s half-life is about 3-5 hours, so space out your doses accordingly. [22] Athletes can take phenylpiracetam pre workout to maximize their strength, speed and endurance.

Side Effects

Some users have reported increased aggressiveness as well as suicidal thoughts after taking phenylpiracetam. [24] Avoid phenylpiracetam if predisposed to these thoughts.

The most commonly reported side effect of phenylpiracetam nootropic supplements is the “racetam headache.” Choline supplements may help alleviate this symptom. [25]

Phenylpiracetam also causes irritability and nausea. Lowering your dose can help mitigate these symptoms. [22]

 Stacks

Racetams can be combined with choline supplements to further increase their effects. [26] Choline is known to help prevent “phenylpiracetam headaches.” Phenylpiracetam also reportedly pairs well with caffeine, fish oil and other nootropics including sulbutiamine. [27] [28] [29]
