Oxiracetams is another drug of the racetam class that functions as a stimulant and is thought to be one of the best smart drugs under its classification. Although the drug is currently not approved by the FDA for the treatment of any conditions in the United States, researches show that it is safe to use even with high dosages and when taken in longer duration. It has been suggested that this drug may be beneficial for those with dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders. Those who take this drug tend to notice improvements in attention, memory, focus, orientation, and logic. One finding highlighted is that this drug was superior to that of piracetam among individuals with brain injuries and dementia.



Piracetam is the first compound developed under the racetam class and was synthetically created by Belgium lab UCB Pharma. Of the racetam class, this is perhaps the most discussed and utilized nootropic. Its mechanism of action is poorly understood, but many speculate that it improves cognition without stimulating or sedating properties. In other words, it doesn't seem to affect a person's arousal. It is a modulator of the AMPA receptor and may work on various ion channels within the brain to excite neurons. Additionally, it improves acetylcholine functioning and may influence NMDA glutamate receptors. There is some evidence that it increases the amount of blood flow and oxygen to the brain. It is not approved in the United States for any condition, but is approved in the United Kingdom. In recent years it has gained popularity among students as a way to increase academic performance.
