Oxiracetam is one of the first three “primary” nootropics and as a result, one of the most widely studied in humans. Piracetam was the first synthesized in the mid 60’s, aniracetam in the 70’s, later in the 70’s
Oxiracetam, like aniracetam and piracetam, is a cholinergic meaning it upmodulates the production of aceylcholine, the learning, memory and movement neurotransmitter. Due to the common pyrollidine backbone the racetams share it also has some stimulating effects due to it’s mild AMPAkine activity. AMPA is a glutamergic sub-set of receptors. The racetams do not offer the same kind of stimulation as caffeine or traditional central nervous system stimulants, rather, they are psychostimulants. Oxiracetam is generally considered more overall energizing than piracetam (the classic and original) and aniracetam (which is often considered to have a secondary calming and social effect for some). This extra energizing effect could be due to oxiracetam having a possible effect on increase of ATP (adenisine tri-phosphate, the basic energy currency of our mitochondria).
The optimum dose for most people seems to be between 300 and 800mg up to 2 to 3 times per day but those who took twice the upper window or more over long periods did not show any toxicity or serious negative peripherals
