Phenylpiracetam (Carphedon, Phenotropil) is a racetam originally developed in the early 1980s in Russia to help astronauts and soldiers stay awake during times of extreme mental and physical stress and fatigue. A powerful memory and energy booster, phenylpiracetam is an altered version of the popular drug Piracetam — it has similar properties and effects but is reportedly up to 60 times more powerful due to the addition of the Phenyl ring. The extra ring allows the body to fully utilize the entire compound. Because of its bioavailability when taken orally, phenylpiracetam is absorbed readily and quickly after ingestion, so its effects are felt quite quickly. This accounts for its reputation as one of the most intense nootropic supplements available.

Phenylpiracetam feels like a psychostimulant and is often taken as a productivity hack – basically, it can make us more efficient, both physically and mentally. Phenylpiracetam is certainly reported as a stimulant or stimulant-like substance by users, but no clinical trials have shown exactly what effect it has on cardiovascular activity. The effects of phenylpiracetam are similar to psychostimulants such as Adderall. Some tout the drug as an alternative to prescription drugs used for cognitive imbalances such as ADHD. As is the case with all racetams, there is no single agreed upon “method of action.” They do affect receptors in the central nervous systems and helps to stimulate important neurotransmitters like acetylcholine, GABA, NMDA and dopamine. In the 2006 Winter Olympics, biathlete Olga Pyleva was barred after having tested positive for Carphedon, which she claims had been prescribed by her doctor.

Potential Benefits

In both powder and pill form, phenylpiracetam is a powerful and effective drug when it comes to mental and physical focus. Like other racetams, it binds to acetylcholine receptors, producing acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which helps with the contraction of cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscles. It also binds to glutamate receptors, eventually producing GABA, a neurotransmitter associated with calming properties.

Most take phenylpiracetam is as a stimulant. It’s known for contributing to both physical and mental energy and drive, and as such is a preferred choice for athletes (though it’s banned from competitions), students, and those with demanding hours and long shift work, such as truck drivers. It’s cognitive enhancement properties have been compared those of Ritalin, Adderall and other “smart” drugs.

In a study on 99 patients with brain injury-induced encephalopathy, patients were given 200 grams of Phenotropil over the course of a month. Follow up CT scans showed that the patients had better motor coordination, memory, mobility and cognitive functioning. The patients showed less anxiety and depression as well as better movement. They also had less epileptiform activities, the type of brainwaves often associated with seizures.

While there have been a few hopeful studies, definitive data on the overall effects of phenylpiracetam (beyond helping cognitive abilities for those who have certain disorders) is hard to find. Ongoing clinical research points to the drug as possibly useful in treating a huge range of disorders, including Alzheimer’s, dementia, vertigo, dyslexia, stroke, pain and inflammation.

Legality?

Phenylpiracetam is a (grey area) legal supplement in North America, the UK and Australia, but the sale of phenylpiracetam (and all racetams) was recently banned on Amazon. The World Anti-Doping Agency has banned the use of this product in competitions because of its effectiveness as a mental and physical stimulant.

Currently it is available from many USA vendors and phenylpiracetam is not currently scheduled within any country in the world. However, some countries may have stricter importing laws and importation may prove difficult.

Reputation & Anecdotal User Reports

Many users report positive stimulating and euphoric effects after using phenylpiracetam.

“Phenylpiracetam is the best mood enhancing nootropic I tried, by far! The main reason I’m taking this one everyday is because it make me feel like I can achieve everything…” Reddit user

“Sometimes I experience a warm, overcoming euphoria creep up on me during come-up. This has significantly helped me keep out of depressive anhedonic states.” ~ Drugs forum

“I just recently did a month on Phenylpiracetam…and I really like it. Being part of the racetam class, its speeds my mental focus up quickly and significantly. To better understand my situation, Im coming from an experience with adderall. Adderall has been a life changer for me, im sharp when im on it, im very very social, and i feel.. rather god-like. I no longer wish to consume that medication, for personal health reasons, and a few other reasons. Anyways, I have found that Phenylpiracetam gives me the mental sharpness that Adderall does.. that quick, out of the box, kind of thinking.” ~  Reddit user

This user suggests it could be a replacement for Adderall:

“I noticed while taking Phenylpiracetam, that it was very similar to Adderall, only without side effects, and a much cleaner version. I would recommend Phenylpiracetam to anyone who’s looking to be on their A game on days they take it, or if they have any big projects at hand.”

One user describes their experience:

“The 150 mg of bitter (this is an understatement, the stuff was astringent) powder took around 20 minutes (on an empty stomach, of course) to exact any changes. The come-up was extremely clean, smoother than a cup of instant coffee to the dome in fact. The physical effects were minimal- a slight increase in heart beat and a dryer-than-usual mouth, which I suspect was a side effect of placing the powder into my tongue and drinking an entire bottle of water to down it (Seriously, use Gel-caps). The mental enhancement was not.”

Side effects & Interactions

To date, there are no known reports of severe interactions or overdoses with this supplement. It is generally considered non-toxic and safe if used in recommended dosages. Side effects of phenylpiracetam are rare and relatively mild but can include anxiety, insomnia, headache, brain fog and agitation. Generally the side effects of phenylpiracetam are along the same lines as side effects for other racetams.

Since some phenylpiracetam users report a fast tolerance buildup, it is not advisable to take this daily. It is not advised to use phenylpiracetam in combination with blood thinners or steroids. It is possible that phenylpiracetam could intensify existing addictions (i.e.: cocaine).

Always start with a lower dose and work your way up if you are new to a supplement.

Though it has not been scientifically proven, phenylpiracetam appears to help those with ADHD to improve their focus and clarity. While this is not necessarily recommended as a long-term strategy or in place of prescription drugs, the supplement does help focus and so trying it for short periods of time (for instance, for students studying for exams) would likely be useful. Users report that a small amount of phenylpiracetam in the morning hours improves their focus throughout the day. It helps with procrastination and makes them think more quickly and have better problem-solving skills. Users also report less fatigue throughout the day.

One user reports that the regular use of phenylpiracetam was able to help someone wean themselves off of a methamphetamine addiction:

“….subject tried to use street amphetamines during one of recent weekends, when he was actively using Phenotropil in the above described doses during workdays, and, to subject’s great surprise, amphetamine had little to none effect. There was absolutely no euphoria, possibly some insignificant energy and alertness / wakefulness. It was non-comparable to amphetamine-usage experience that existed prior to the beginning of Phenotropil’s regular usage, nonetheless (it kicked high, for long, and its presence was definitely much more tangible). I won’t judge whether this is good or bad – there are many arguable pros and cons, but it could definitely be important in some cases, in my opinion.”

Dosage & Stacking Advice

The recommended dose of phenylpiracetam alone is 100 mg with food twice a day, up to an absolute maximum of 750 mg. More than 200 mg might be either appropriately stimulating or too much, depending on a user’s weight and biochemistry. Restlessness and sleep disturbance is possible, so it’s best to take early in the morning and then midday. It’s best to take this supplement “as needed,” as daily use can result in a fast tolerance build-up, so it’s best to cycle it or only use it when you most need it. Racetam users also report acetylcholine headaches with the wrong stacks.

Popular Stacks:

  • Take 50g with a few squares of dark chocolate, plus 50g of sulbutimaine (take it with a meal) for a nice gentle mental boost.
  • Take it with other racetams like noopept for focus. One user reports:
  • “Today I stacked 150 mg of phenylpiracetam with a 100 mg/200 mg caffeine/Theanine capsule and I can’t say what i’m feeling right now is placebo. Sort of like a vyvanse lite without the robotic emotion dulling. Definitely enjoying this combo since it’s making my calculus class easier by a long shot! Would definitely recommend for people with attention problems.” Reddit user
  • Try it with Modafinil for alertness in the mornings and through the day
  • Try it with choline (Alpha-GPC or citicoline) to boost brain power and prevent acetylcholine headaches. This can be good for social anxiety but this user advises against taking all three together.
  • Cycle it or take occasionally when you are facing a long day: 100mg phenylpiracetam, 2g Piracetam and 300 mg Alpha GPC
