i am a person who has suffered with motivation, energy levels, and what i consider "slow brain function" my whole life. I recently tried piracetam and it worked like a miracle. However, I am using piracetam in hopes that it causes a long lasting positive affect even after stopping usage (or at least no noticeable discontiuation effects)
I find that amphetamine is one of the best nootropics, but I have to stop using it because when I stop taking it, I feel extremely tired, slow, and unmotivated.
Has anyone had experience with using piracetam for awile and then stopping? Does it cause a permanent beneficial affect or will the benefits be reversed when I stop taking it? Ive read of people requiring to up the dosage due to tolerance, people talk about taking 10-20 grams in one dose. This is what I am trying to avoid. I currently take 1.2 grams and get more than enough of an effect, but I don't want to keep upping my dosage only to find out that when I stop taking it I am left in a hole like I was with amphetamines.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
