My First Stack

* - - - -
alcar alpha-gpc piracetam picamilon sulbutiamine


I have never taken nootropics and I know that they say not to start off with stacks but I am a rebel. I have done a bunch of research and came up with this list. The goal is to improve overall cognitive functioning (memory, learning, recall etc.) and mood.  I will tweek things as I go and am open to suggestions from the audience.  There is a lot of information out there so I am all for hearing personal experiences. I am also wondering if I should cycle off all of these or just some or if I can take them daily without cycling?  I have read different things so at this point I want the opinions and experiences of others. I look forward to the response!

Ingredient Dosage Frequency Administration
ALCAR 500 mg Daily Morning
Alpha-GPC 250 mg Daily Morning
Piracetam 4 gram Daily Morning
Picamilon 150 mg Daily Morning
Sulbutiamine 500 mg Daily Morning

Phase these in one at a time over the span of many weeks (at least 10 days per; and, if you really want to work toward a good stack, do a separate blind-test on yourself with a placebo for each noot that you phase in).


Jumping into any stack is a mistake. You won't know where the positive, and more importantly, where any adverse side effects are coming from, with any degree of "certainty" at least.

Sounds like a good idea, but how do you do a blind-test on yourself with a placebo?

Easy: Just put a sugar pill that seems like any of the ingredients and mark it with lets say a dot made with a fork or a knife. Eat it, and then at the end of the day look for that pill. If it is not there then you ate it, and if you felt anything then it was only placebo.
