Pramiracetam Improves Memory and Helps with Alzheimer’s Disease
What is Pramiracetam
Pramiracetam (Pramistar) is a nootropic derived from piracetam and is a member of the racetam family. It was first synthesized by scientists at Parke-Davis in the late 1970’s.
It was originally created as a treatment for Alzheimer’s but was abandoned after trials showed mixed results.
It was later licensed in Europe where it was continued to be developed as a treatment for dementia. The patent expired in 1996 and has now gained popularity as a nootropic.
Benefits and Effects Pramiracetam Nootropic Super Drug
As a nootropic, pramiracetam is believed to improve long-term memory, concentration and focus. It is a derivative of piracetam and is 5-30x more potent.
Originally created as a treatment for Alzheimer’s, pramiracetam not only has been shown to be an effective treatment for memory loss, but also in the formation and speed of recall of new memories.
It also acts as a neuro-protective agent to protect the brain against age-related cognitive decline by boosting acetylcholine production in the brain.
Many people report feeling greater mental alertness, focus and thinking while using pramiracetam. Some people even report less anxiety during social situations.
Unlike other racetams, pramiracetam has very little stimulant properties.
Another difference between pramiracetam and other racetams is that it is fat soluble rather than water soluble. This means that it depends on fatty acids in order to be absorbed into the body. It may be best to take it with food. The effects may be felt within a half hour and can last 4-6 hours.
The maximum daily dose of pramiracetam is 1,200mg, which can either be taken twice a day at 600mg or three times at 400mg. Although pramiracetam is tolerated at higher doses, there does not appear to be any additional benefit at a higher dose.
Although there are few side effects associated with pramiracetam, it’s recommended that you start with a smaller dose and increase over a period of time as desired.
Pramiracetam is available in powdered and capsule form, but the powdered form has a very unpleasant taste, so you may want to elect for the capsule form.
Pramiracetam is well-tolerated, even at higher doses and has very few reported side effects aside from headaches, which are common with all racetams. Supplementing with Alpha GPC or CDP choline can help avoid any headaches. Some users have reported some stomach distress.
Pramiracetam does very well on its own to boost cognitive functions but can be stacked with other nootropics to attain maximum results.
Whenever taking a racetam, it’s recommended that you take a choline supplement as well. Choline will not only maximize the effects of the racetam, but it will also help decrease the chances of developing a headache, which is common with racetams. Try a stack of 400mg pramiracetam and 300mg GPC Choline one to three times a day.
Stacking pramiracetam with a more stimulating nootropic, such as adrafinil or oxiracetam is recommended for increasing mental alertness over a longer period of time, while stacking with another anti-anxiety nootropic, such as aniracetam, can improve mood and ease anxiety in social situations.
Pramiracetam stacks well with aniracetam, oxiracetam, adrafinil, centrophenoxine and Alpha GPC or CDP choline.
Pramiracetam Smart Drug Overview
Pramiracetam is an excellent nootropic that enhances your cognitive functions but doesn’t have the stimulatory effect that many racetams have.
The only drawback to pramiracetam is that it is more expensive because it is harder to synthesize and it has a terrible taste.
