Do's and Don'ts About Nootropics

Updated on March 21, 2013


Check the Ingredient List

The good nootropics really help with your performance and really boost your abilities. They cause you to think more clearly, to focus better and to memorize more effectively. However, short term effect that resembles these can be also achieved by caffeine or sugar intake. Therefore, before purchasing the nootropics, make sure that it has natural and chemical ingredients inside, like green tea, gingko or Rhodiola Rosea.

Do Your Research

Although a great pill, a nootropics pill will not be that effective if you don’t use it in the correct and appropriate dosage. Also, not all nootropics have the same effects. Therefore, do an extensive research about the one that you are considering using and make sure that you are taking the correct dosage and that you are taking the one that suits your needs the most.

Check Out the Experiences of Others

There are so many communities and online forums where you can learn a lot about what others think about those nootropics. You will be able to read about what people who have already tried these think and what were the effects that they have experienced. You have to keep in mind that different people experience different effects. However, their comments and reviews will give you a general idea.


Combine the Pills without Doctor’s Advice

Some nootropics can cause a bit elevated heart rate or blood pressure. Therefore, if you are on a therapy, or you are taking any other drugs or supplements, it is necessary for you to check with your doctor. The nootropics itself will not really hurt you, but the combination can have negative effects on your health.

Correct the Dosage

The dosage is very important with nootropics. It is very carefully chosen and very carefully calculated by the manufacturer. You will hardly increase the effects of the nootropics if you increase the dosage on your own. However, you can do more harm than benefits when increasing the dosage on your own. Therefore, study the instructions carefully before starting taking nootropics.

Ignore the Negative Reactions

Some of the ingredients of the nootropics can cause the allergic reactions. These reactions can vary from very mild ones to the really severe ones. However, these can include fever, shortness of breath, rashes, nausea or some other symptoms. If taking the nootropics causes some of these or some other symptoms, contact your doctor instantly.
