It is worth adding to the previous answer that if you suddenly want to play with nootropics, then be extremely careful. Phenotropil, which, in fact, is a fairly "popular" nootropic is VERY often a target for counterfeiting. I would suggest that the person-to-person effect varies, in part due to the high number of counterfeits on the market. The price of phenotropil is sufficient and the probability of stumbling upon a factory defect / counterfeit is appropriate.
Piracetam is a little more difficult, because it is mainly used for disorders of cerebral circulation. Accordingly, it is difficult to assess the effect of piracetam and, most likely, a minimal effect will be provided on a person without any pathologies / disorders.
I myself am a student and a couple of years ago I played with nootropics. I tried to drink piracetam 1.5 months before the session - no changes occurred. Phenotropil had a positive effect on concentration and mood.
In general, both drugs have a mild effect (But phenotropil is better) and, if you are looking for a boost in brain performance (A classic example is the period of sessions; Work associated with constant mental stress - for example, web design) for a short time - you can resort to psychostimulants / neuroleptics - Modafinil, Ritalin, but in the Russian Federation they were included in the list of prohibited drugs in 2012 and you can find them only abroad - for example, in the USA or India. Not to mention some Adderall
From what is on the territory of the Russian Federation, I can offer phenibut or all the same phenotropil. (Roskomnadzor for mercy)
And NZT will never go beyond the well-known book, unfortunately :(
No, because the action of the NZT pill is based on the myth that a person uses only 10% of their brain, and the pill supposedly makes it work 100%. But there is an alternative in the form of nootropics, which should stimulate mental activity, activate cognitive functions, improve memory and increase the ability to learn ... In fact, the effects of the latter vary from person to person. If you still decide to try them, then it is better to consult a doctor. And if your doctor is on vacation, then buy piracetam + glycine and drink a course. And keep in mind that it has a cumulative effect, i.e. it will appear after a while, it depends on the dosage, usually in a month. If you want more, then ask your doctor about drugs such as phenotropil (an improved version of piracetam), phenibut, semax, picamilon. But it's better to ask Google about modafinil and DMAA (Roskomnadzor?), Otherwise you never know.
