Sulbutiamine Dosage Recommendations

Proper sulbutiamine dosage is crucial to the success of the supplement. Sulbutiamine is a derivative of thiamine (vitamin B1) and it provides a variety of cognitive benefits. Originally, the drug was designed to reverse the negative effects of vitamin B1 deficiency which include memory lapses, mood swings, reduced attention span and focus, and acute depression. Today, Sulbutiamine supplements are used to address many other conditions such as mental fatigue, stress, anxiety, as well as psychological erectile dysfunction.

Sulbutiamine benefits can be quite elusive if correct dosage recommendations are not followed. In fact, some users have reported bad reactions from using an extremely high Sulbutiamine dosage. Still, knowing the recommended dosage range is not enough; you need to go ahead and pinpoint an exact dosage level that will give you optimum results based on your personal experience.  This could take some time, but is usually worth it.

Sulbutiamine dosage, as I have already hinted, does not come in absolute numbers. This is simply because people do not react the same way or get the same results from taking a specific amount. A dosage that may offer optimum results with zero side effects to one user may elicit quite a different reaction with less than perfect outcome from another user. Researchers have indicated that these differences arise from numerous single or interacting factors such as the user’s age, overall health, biochemistry, lifestyle and whether or not the user is taking other supplements.

Having said that, the general recommended Sulbutiamine dosage range is between 400mg and 1000mg per 24-hour period. However, if you have never used nootropics before, consider starting with a lower dosage of about 400mg per day as you assess the outcome. This is also a safe dosage to start with if you suspect that you might be allergic or sensitive to nootropic types of supplements. You can then increase the dosage over time within the recommended range until you find your optimum dosage.

Single Vs. Split Dosage

Sulbutiamine daily dosage can be taken as one large single dose or in 2-3 split doses. The most common practice is the split dosage where the daily dose is divided into two to three equal doses which are then taken throughout the day in 4-6 hour intervals. It’s important to mention that this nootropic has a shorter half-life of about 4-6 hours in our bodies, additionally; they are quickly absorbed and metabolized due to their high level of bioavailability. So taking Sulbutiamine in splits ensures that you get consistent effects throughout the day.

Single dosage, on the other hand, is commonly practiced by users experienced with nootropics and who have some fair level of tolerance to these kind of compounds. Such users often take their daily doses once per day at the time when they need to experience intensive effects of Sulbutiamine. This could be during exam period, study, interview or any other intensive situations that require razor-sharp focus and enhanced memory. However, as mentioned, this should be left to experienced users who know their way around nootropic supplements.

Powder vs Capsules/Pills

Now that you know a little something about Sulbutiamine dosage, the next logical question is; which formulation should I buy? Sulbutiamine comes in powder and capsules/pills, each format with its own pros and cons.

New users prefer pills or capsules because they are easy to order and convenient to take. They commonly come in 200mg, 300mg, and 500mg. However, pills and capsules don’t offer as much flexibility when it comes to dosage. So they might not be the best choice for users who are still experimenting with dosage.

On the other hand, powder formulations tend to be cheap and offer users the flexibility of experimenting with different dosage levels. However, it can be quite a hassle measuring those tiny dosage amounts on a daily basis.


According to many reviews, the Sulbutiamine dosage is almost unique to each user. So you will basically need to do a small human experiment on yourself to determine the dosage that brings the best out of you. If you need to stack this supplement with other nootropics, chances are you will use a lower dosage level, but first, make sure you consult your doctor.
