30 mg oral Noopept (daily)
I felt compelled to wright a report about my experience with this drug mainly due to my unexpected results as well as the fact that I have been able to find few to no reports on this Chemical.

Background Drug Experience:
I've used more than 30 hard drugs so its not worth me listing them all. Simply put I have tried my fair share of drugs. I do not use drugs very often anymore although in my teens I used almost daily, for the past few years I have been using once a month at the most, normally once every two-three months.

Medical History and Prescriptions:
I have had a lifelong battle with depression and social and general anxiety. I have tried several different medications for depression and anxiety with little to no success at any dosage. I also have a mild case of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to some very personal drama that happened years back... I won't go into details.

My Current Medications are:
Mirtazapine - has been the only medication that's helped at all and I had been taking it for 6+ months prior to starting to take Noopept so no further improvement would be reasonable to expect at that point.
Estrodiol Valerate - for gender dysphoria which I had been taking for 3+ years prior to starting Noopept.
Lupron - for gender dysphoria which I had been taking for 6+ months prior to starting Noopept.

I stumbled upon this drug while shopping for research chemicals online. I was very skeptical about what I had read about the affects of this drug however I figured 'HEY why not!' (A personal motto that over the years has landed me in more trouble than I ever imagined possible.)

I purchased 10 grams for $50 (a very reasonable price for the low daily dosage required) and began taking 30mg a day in the morning.

From what I had read online I was expecting a memory boost as well as slight increased in concentration. The skeptic in me was pleasantly surprised to find that this part was true however not in a way I was expecting. I began remembering childhood memories I thought were long ago forgotten as if they happened yesterday. I began concentrating on obscure ideas and thinking/planning them through.
What I was even less prepared for was within only a matter of weeks my mood had improved, even with added stressors as well as the rise of some very depressing work issues. I began to enjoy music more, even more than when I take amphetamines and/or psychedelics! I had more energy and was considerably more motivated to do just about anything! I became more outgoing, friendly, less self-conscious, I even started dancing at parties! Which for a introverted individual like myself that not even MDMA or Speed has been able force me to dance this was quite an accomplishment!

Before I started taking Noopept i had the concern of the potential memory enhancement dragging up old unpleasant memories related to my mild case of PTSD. Unfortunately this was true for a while, but I have taken enough medications in the past to know that I need to wait at least one month to see how my body will react to a new medication and I'm glad I stuck with it! After about 3 or 4 weeks the normally overwhelming emotion that accompanied these painful memories was somewhat detached. I was able to look at things from a much more objective stand point rather than narrowly avoiding an anxiety attack while trying to repress and ignore the memory.

Side effects:
I was amazed to find that there was few to none. There was some odd dreams and my new-found self confidence had led me to be a little more confrontational. Although with my new found concentration and memory I was better able to support my arguments. I was even able to quote word for word entire paragraphs of my union book to my employer and remember page and paragraph numbers!

This is a fantastic drug that has helped me far more than I ever thought possible with few to no side effects. Even with the absence of any real trip it has already become one of my favorites.
