These doses are too high for me. I can't take more than about 200mg Piracetam per day without getting negative effects, and even less for Oxi- and Ani- (50-100mg).
Wow i didn't know that anyone felt effects at such small doses. I wish I was you! :D Sorry I did not give you an option to choose in the poll. But it's good that you posted here so people know that it can work for some people at even lower doses.
Yes, those micro-doses are daily total for me with a similar dose of choline precursor (Centrophenoxine/Lucidril). I can *definitely* feel the effects at this dosage level, and if I take much more, I get paradoxical effects (tiredness, dizziness, short-term amnesia, inability to concentrate, basically the opposite of what you want from the racetams). There are some people who get significant effects with micro-doses, and these have been discussed in some threads, e.g. http://www.longecity...am-micro-doses/
Either some people eliminate it much more slowly than others, or else the acetyl-choline receptors are already more dense, or maybe in general people are taking much higher doses than necessary. Since many of the pharmacological doses were established for Alzheimers sufferers, it stands to reason (for me) that healthy brains would not need those kinds of doses. However, with the racetams, there seems to be no possibility of accurately generalizing the most effective dose for each individual, unfortunately.
