I would say that Piracetam
is a great replacement as long as SWIY actually discontinues his amphetamine use
. I have read about the potentiating effects of Piracetam and I speculate that using it in conjunction with an amphetamine may potentially destroy one's appreciation for it's effects when taken by itself. I suggest SWIY take a couple of weeks off any kind of chemical "enhancement" before beginning Piracetam supplementation.
For the record, I don't believe using amphetamines as a Nootropic is a responsible thing to do as there is very limited sustainability as well as a high potential of forming an abusive habit. SWIM
went through some tough times in the past and is now doing just fine with Piracetam. He is very pleased with it and feels much better about what it is doing to his mind & body.
