Aniracetam is a nootropic or a smart drug which is viewed as more potent than Piracetam. It was developed by a chemist Hoffmann La-Roche in the 1970s. Its method of action is quite similar to other nootropics. It stimulates the AMPA receptors and these receptors play an important role in memory and learning function. This drug has a higher affinity with these receptors more than other racetam compounds. It reduces the anxiety effects and this is done without causing any sedation. This compound is used for medical purposes in some countries and some of the common trade names of this drug are Draganon, Sarpul, and Memodrin.
In North America and many other countries, it does not have any registered use but it is available over-the-counter. It is approved for the treatment of memory and attention disorders and generally given to the elders to reduce the symptoms of cognitive disorders. Though it is not recommended as a primary treatment for the medical conditions but can reduce the medical symptoms and its side effects. Many have received good results in reducing depression and anxiety symptoms by using Aniracetam dosages. Still, it is not recommended to use this compound primarily or in combination with other treatment therapies without proper professional consultation.
Stacking Aniracetam and Piracetam
Aniracetam and Piracetam are two of the most popular nootropics which have benefits like memory, mood, focus, and productivity. There are additional benefits if both of them are taken together rather than individually. This combination is said to promote a synergistic effect with increased potency. These nootropics have different range effects and give a better experience if taken together. Piracetam takes time to develop the effects and is effective in increasing alertness, cognitive health, and mental energy levels. On the other hand, this drug has a quicker kick-in time and users feel the effect very rapidly, but it has a short half-life.
Piracetam does not have the mood-enhancing properties although research studies say it has a mood balancing effect. When both the nootropics are used in combination, they promote mood enhancement. Before taking the stack it is important to experiment them individually at low dosages. Once their positive effects have been determined using in isolation, they can be used together. The beginners are often prescribed dosages in terms of the ratios between Aniracetam and Piracetam as 4:1. Better results may be received using a different ratio of 2:1 or 1:1. Piracetam is water soluble and therefore ought to be taken on an empty stomach whereas the other nootropic is fat soluble and therefore should be taken along with a fat source.
Buying this compound
In the United States, this drug is an unscheduled and unregulated compound. It is not approved by the US to treat any medical condition. However, it is legal to buy and use in the US and many other countries. There are not many vendors in the US that sell them and in fact, this nootropic is not available in the local stores or at Amazon, Walmart, or GNC. Many users are using Aniracetam dosages after purchasing them from the online vendors. The number of online stores is limited and many try to import it from countries where its sale is legal and more regulated.
