I can't find anymore piracetam. Is FDA cracking down on it or could it be something else? I just started piracetam and I love it.

Hmm...it would certainly seem that way. Almost every page I search for containing any of the racetams now returns an Amazon 404, except for those that state "Product Unavailable" or "Out of stock".

Still, there are plenty of sources aside from Amazon.com.

I would recommend Cognitive Nutrition or Relentless Improvement.

i know that Paypal doesn`t like modafinil at all but one can still get it from other excellent resoures

it`s OK that Amazon shut it down or something, you have other better choices ,maybe.
people in longecity help, such as LBGSHI,and i will do a favor if you like.

Piracetam isn't being taken off of amazon. The companies that sell through amazon are out of stock and whatnot. Piracetam is lame anyway.

Wrong mate NZT, they are removing Piracetam. I contacted Amazon today about this to see if it had anything to do with a legality issue, it has to deal with Amazon restricting Piracetam. I am guessing, that the rest of the Racetams that disappeared have to due with this as well, seems like Amazon doesn't want anything that isn't found in local vitamin shops to be dispersed through them.

I got a message a few minutes ago from the vendor whom I had been ordering from through Amazon about this whole ordeal, and they said that it isn't anything to do with some sort of new legal crack down and they still had their products available on their website and eBay as well.

A lot of people vanished off of Amazon; Cerebral Health, JL, Smart Drugs for Thought, and a bunch of other capsuled varieties that I can't remember. Seems like all that is left up is stuff that is either being fulfilled by Amazon or products given gimmicky names (Nooracetam was on Amazon for a bit after a bunch disappeared, but they seem to have been axed too).

:( looks like it's on to the vendors direct site or eBay. Which....honestly I'm looking forward to now, whom I order from has cheaper prices on their direct/eBay store versus their Amazon. Not sure why though :/

Well, if they were to remove piracetam, it would be logical to remove all the other racetams too.

What happened to the Neuro Wave Aniracetam listing on Amazon??? I just ordered some 3 weeks ago and was looking for more last night, but now it is no where to be found. This Aniracetam is high quality and low priced...is there any other capsuled aniracetam similar to this one?

I believe their products are still available on their webpage, however they are just one of the many vendors that Amazon PK'ed this week. You might need to just google Capsuled aniracetam to find out any other viable source. :/

What do you mean by "PK'ed"?
Oh thanks, I found the website where neuro wave aniracetam is listed and sold. I also found them on ebay as well. It's a shame Amazon is going down this route.
Also, noopept is not anywhere to be found on amazon. Most listings of noots seem to have been removed. I know racetams are not prohibited supplements or illegal.
CDP choline and sulbutiamine are still available on amazon by the way.

Sanguine, do you use noopept?

I've tried Noopept in the past, but I'm under the impression that it was a bit too strong for me as it only made me drowsy.

"PK'ed" product killed

Ya it seems like they pretty much targeted Racetams, and a few other Nootropics :/

As far as I know the FDA is cracking down just on Piracetam to make room for a pharmaceutical company to monopolize on it as a "drug". The rest of the noots are still available from what I see.

amazon like many other companies is effected by various market influences, without pretending I know why they took 'racems out of their market place, let me offer the following, the truth may not be attractive to them, or they may not really know.

what I mean by this is that some managing director somewhere may have decided to cull anything that wasn't attracting a certain rate of sale in order to free up some servcer capacity and increase revenue elsewhere.

Or they may have killed it because a company (some other company) offered them money to limit the availabilitty of a thing in order to drive up the price.

Representatives of Amazon.com are about as likely to genuinely represent the motivations of the company as they are to be properly informed.

Ach, it's a mixed bag. Bad for the vendors that sold on amazon, and a blow for convenience. It was a terribly awful move to just cut them off -- that is extremely unprofessional of them, and an insult to vendors that were providing good service to their customers AND bringing in good commissions for Amazon. But at the same time, I often feel guilty about ordering everything under the sun on amazon. Kind of like always shopping at walmart for everything. Probably bad for the economy.

Is there a chance that they want to start selling racetams themselves, so decided to cut the existing vendors off?

They may well be branching out into the pharms market, after all it's one of the biggest, if I had a responsibility to share holders; thats where I'd be aiming my companies in any market. It is a terrible shame that they are doing it, but alternatives are all over the place there are entire threads dedicated to vendors. Go trawling in the forum you'll find more than a few sources.
