Oxiracetam is a nootropic which can have a very wide range of effects depending on the user. Even though it is not possible to fully categorize which effects you will get from Oxiracetam, in this post I will try to paint a picture of the most common effects that people get from Oxiracetam, and the ones that you’re most likely to feel.
The primary effect that individuals get from Oxiracetam is a sharp increase in focus and motivation. Oxiracetam is a highly energizing nootropic, and many people feel that it’s effects are even more stimulating than those of caffeine. Because of this it is not wise to take Oxiracetam before bed, as it may inhibit your ability to fall asleep.
In addition to Oxiracetam’s stimulating effects, many people also find that taking Oxiracetam increases their memory. This boost in memory gained from Oxiracetam usage makes it easier to take in new information, and makes you more likely to retain it later on.
Because of it’s ability to boost both focus as well as memory, Oxiracetam is commonly used by individuals who would like to improve their performance at work or in their studies.
A less common effect of Oxiracetam is a reduction in anxiety. The interesting thing about this effect is that depending on your personal neurochemistry, you may actually get the opposite effect. For the people who it does work for, they describe Oxiracetam as being an incredibly powerful anxiolytic, on par with L-Theanine and Noopept.
On the other hand, for the people who get the inverse of this effect from Oxiracetam, it is described as causing strong anxiety.
Another possible effect which one can get from Oxiracetam is a boost in verbal fluency. This effect is relatively common, and the odds of getting it are moderately good. For many people who get this effect, this can be a powerful boon for parties and other social situations.
Uncertainty in Oxiracetam’s effects
As with all nootropics, there’s no way to be certain about which effects you will get from Oxiracetam. Given variations in neurochemistry between individuals, any description of a nootropic’s effects is a vague estimation at best. The only way to truly know how a given nootropic will effect you is to sample it yourself.
In my opinion everybody who is just starting out with nootropics should make a list of nootropics that seem interesting to them, and then buy a small amount of each one online. An example of this would be to purchase a small amount of Aniracetam, Oxiracetam, Noopept, and L-Theanine. This would be a tad expensive upfront, but after doing so one would have a perfect idea of which nootropics give them beneficial effects, and wouldn’t have to waste any money in the future on those that don’t.
When trying a new nootropic for the first time, you should always stick to the low end of the dosage spectrum. If you are not aware of your individual sensitivity to Oxiracetam (or any other nootropic, for that matter) and you take too high of a dose, this could result in negative side effects.
