I take piracetam in cycles of a few months at about 10 grams per day, and notice feeling considerably slower following the cessation of use. It's difficult to directly attribute the dullness to the stoppage of piracetam, but I certainly do feel a lot 'duller' when I am not using it-- moreso than before I even began using piracetam in the first place. Kinda disconcerting.
How long after cessation do you continue to feel dull? Have you tried tapering down then stopping completely? This is very disconcerting. I wouldn't want to be dependent like this. Have you been diagnosed with anything?
Can anyone explain the cause of this rebound effect? Which receptors are downregulating?
Viscid, you stated below that you had supplemented with Glutamine, perhaps this has caused excitotoxicity which in turn made you duller. I would like to see anecdotal reports of others that have used this combo.
