Are Nootropics addictive?
The description of the range of smart drugs, meant for treating disorders of the brain or in improvement of cognitive functions, known as nootropics, has been an extremely varied one since the arise of nootropics in the United States in late 2000. Nootropics emerged from Romania in 1972. From then on, these drugs wold belong to the racetam family, or at least some form of it.Some of the regularly prescribed Nootropics, that are used extensively overseas in Europe include, Piracetam, Aniracetam, Noopept, Pramiracetam and Oxiracetam.Most of them provide, in varying degrees, relief from attention disorders, memory loss, lapses in concentration, mood swings and a host of other brain related neuro disorders. Again, Nootropics exhibit the capacity to cross the blood-brain barrier, commonly referred to as BBB. This enables these smart drugs to directly address the deficiencies in the neurotransmitters in the brain and in treating cognitive dysfunction. Since it involves sensitive treatment, an average person would want to know, before taking any of these smart drugs:
Are Nootropics Addictive? Let us try to answer this question.
To understand the way these smart drugs function once taken in the tablet form, we have to have an idea of their composition and the effects they produce. The basic composition of these Nootropics addresses the deficiency in the neurotransmitters inside the brain. By multiplying their quantity, and over a period, these neurotransmitters, which ultimately control the various cognitive functions, will restore the person’s abilities, and enhance others that were’t lacking-which is why in healthy individuals nootropics enhanced, and in those with dementia or addiction, nootropics heal.Perhaps one major disorder, especially among children and adolescents, namely, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD and its symptoms have been invariably treated with one or a stack of these Nootropics. And they have been successful in bringing back to the users, the abilities to be attentive, especially in classrooms, grasp what is being taught, and to drastically improve their memory power so that what is learnt is retained, a great alternative to prescription stimulants!
What are most Nootropics Like?
Almost equally, the Nootropics have been found to be quite effective in treating men and women in the next age group, the 20s, 30s and 40s, even up to 50 years, if faced with anxiety, high blood pressure, mood swings, negative thought processes and so on. And in a host of cases (similar to mine with my productivity and financial well-being), the prolonged usage of the Nootropics in the appropriate dosage and under proper medical supervision has completely changed people’s lives and in many cases their careers.In the next older group of 60years and above, disorders like Dementia, Alzheimer’s and memory loss have responded very well to specific combinations of Nootropics and brought some cheer into their lives. So Nootropics still play a vital role in providing relief to people, and these smart drugs have stood the test of time.
Now back to the question: Are Nootropics Addictive?; a majority of regular users will swear that no it isn’t. There may be an odd voice here or a negative point there. However, if one goes into these cases, it will be found that the only people who might complain of these drugs being addictive will be the ones who have used these without any of the symptoms above, but to just experiment with some performance boosting intentions or more frequently consuming more than the dosage prescribed. Experts will tell you that over dosage of any drug can lead to habit-forming consequences, and it is for the individual to be responsible for the use of such important drugs. All in all however, no, nootropics do not develop tolerance and therefore nootropics are not addictive.
Common Nootropic Side Effects
Mild side effects one may feel while testing nootropics are a dry mouth (Adrafinil and Phenylpiracetam), and a dull headache from mild choline depletion (if one takes a CDP Choline Supplement, these effects are evaporated). No other reported side effects exist for nootropics.
Nootropics are a great new breed in a class of smart drugs that only keep growing, very little side effects, and a wide selection availalble!
