so there's more chance piracetam will work cus of glutamine? Piracetam alone doesen't work for me.
The first time I did a megadose of Piracetam (4 grams at one sitting), it did create a verbal hypomania/extroversion/creative episode. And that was just Piracetam by itself. I'm not nearly so likely to get that effect from Piracetam alone these days. But since then I have added many things to a Piracetam stack that is constantly varying and seem to enhance it/make something happen. My hypothesis is that creative episodes with Piracetam are more likely to happen when the brain is a bit excited already. Strong responders are typically a bit on the manic edge in the first place. So things that stimulate the brain will tend to enhance Piracetam's effect. So caffeine, ritalin, adderall, modafanil, hydergine, deprenyl will enhance the effect, but also less stimulating cognitive enhancers: DMAE, ALCAR, B-vitamins, choline, sulbutiamine, etc. Glutamine is probably similar. It can certainly also be the case that Piracetam, through its numerous mechanisms of actions, is enhancing or broadening the effect of these other substances. Another strong potentiator of Piracetam is exercise. Down some Piracetam and your favorite things to stack with it and go do a solid aerobic or anaerobic workout and see if you don't notice a difference.
Advice to Piracetam non-responders:
1)Skip it entirely for at least a week, maybe longer. If you've been on it a while, maybe even a month to really get it and it's effect out of your system.
2)Take a large dose of Piracetam (3200-5000mgs) all at once with some choline (say 500 mgs).
3)Take several Piracetam stacking substances: DMAE, ALCAR, deprenyl, sulbutiamine, sublingual B-12 or just about anything else others recommend stacking with Piracetam.
4)Add a stimulant at a dose that by itself you find rather stimulating.
5)Go do a fairly intense workout.
I predict most "non-responders" will have an effect.
