Swim originally began researching nootropics after hearing Piracetam can increase the effects of Adderall (using that regularly has sky-rocketed his tolerance, of course), but continued research of various nootropics and Adderall kind of turned him on to the idea of clean nootropic use. Adderall seems to have some pretty serious long-term side effects, and the nootropics seem to have little or none. (Can anyone confirm this?) However, Swim's not sure if this is what he wants, yet. 5-htp is all that Swim's sure he can get, regularly. However, this one supposedly increases Adderall tolerance even further. Thus, a predicament: Adderall's had a fantastic impact on Swim's daily life, in so many ways. His grades, his weight, his attitude. What he appreciate most however is the boost in self-confidence and the effects on his artistic endeavors. Can anyone with experience with Adderall and 5-htp compare what kind of effects they'll have on these certain aspects? Which one had a stronger effect in what area, and whatnot. If anyone has recommendations for a different nootropic, please do post. Also, if anyone with Adderall experience has any similar recommendations for recreational drugs, that'd be nice too.
