The 2-3 hour half-life doesn't seem to apply to me - I feel the effects up to 6-8 hours after dosing. This serves as a fair warning to anyone wanting to try phenylpiracetam for the first time. Some notes:
I).Dosing should be titrated up, leaving an adequate amount of time between doses. As with a lot of cognitive enhancers, avoid the urge to te-dose too soon.
II) Nausea, sweating and dizziness is common for me when I over-estimate how much I truly need. Supplementing with Alpha GPC does nothing to abate those symptoms. Two quick eggs thrown in the microwave does seem to mitigate some of the side effects (they are a natural Choline source).
iii) Tolerance builds rapidly, and you will end up with more side effects than positive effects in the long run. In my experience, phenylpiracetam is one of. Just a handful of nootropics that simply lose the positive effects when abused
Used responsibly and infrequently, phenylpiracetam has to be my favourite nootropic. Balancing the urge to redose is the only reason I knocked 1 star off, as well as the obvious cost of the product. Shipping is always commendable, as is their excellent customer service.
