Oxiracetam Dosage Guide

Oxiracetam is well known for its consistent potency in the brain enchantment category. It’s a member of the racetam family of nootropics with very notable and unique effects. Some of its most sought after benefits include mood stabilization, anti-anxiety, improved memory and focus, greater concentration and mental energy, increased learning speed, and so on.  In order to get all these benefits, users need to find the right Oxiracetam dosage that works for them.

Taking the right doses at the right intervals will ensure that you get the most out of this supplement and eliminate any potential negative side effects. Finding the right Oxiracetam dosage, however, takes some time and experimentation. This is because not everyone responds the same way to the same dosage rate, however, with a few general rules, you can find your correct dosage.

The most recommended dosage rate for Oxiracetam ranges from 600mg to 3,000mg per day. If you have never used Oxiracetam or nootropic drugs in general, it is recommended that you start with the lower rate and work your way up as you feel comfortable. Begin at 600-2000mg per day, and equally divide this into 2-3 doses equally throughout the day. Our personal recommendation is three doses of 200mg each per day for starters.

The reason for starting at a lower Oxiracetam dosage is because of the reportedly strong effects that the drug has on the cognitive functions of the human body.  Starting at a lower rate will also minimize any potential risks to users that may be highly sensitive or allergic to Oxiracetam. Additionally, Oxiracetam has a shorter half-life of about 3 hours; this means that the effects of the drug will start wearing down 3 hours after you first start feeling them.

Regular Oxiracetam users often take up to 2000-3000mg of Oxiracetam per day in three equal splits distributed evenly throughout the day. Again, the exact measurements required to give optimum results vary among different people. You will need to find the best balance for you through some experimentation, but the supplement has been reported to show significant benefits of improved memory and mental clarity even at relatively low dosages.

Oxiracetam Overdose

Some users have attempted taking higher doses than recommended on the label and ended up with some unpleasant reactions. Even though Oxiracetam, like many other nootropics, is very safe and has an extremely low toxicity to humans, overdosing can produce some unpleasant side effects.

Doses of over 3000mg per day have been reported to elicit side effects such as headaches, dizziness, nausea, Gastrointestinal Distress, Insomnia, and Nervousness. These effects can also be experienced in some new users who attempt to start with high Oxiracetam doses than their body can catch up with.

Bottom Line

So, to prevent negative side effects and ensure that you get the most out of this drug, be sure to follow the label recommendations. Additionally, consider starting your Oxiracetam dosage at a lower rate if you are new to nootropics. There have been some recommendations for users to take mega doses once per week to experience intensive effects of the drug; while this has been shown to work in some users, such kind of experimentation should be left to experienced users of nootropics.
