Pramiracetam was discovered by scientists at Parke-Davis, USA in the late 1970s. Being chemically very similar to Choline, Pramiracetam causes formation of nitric oxide – a powerful vasodilator, which is crucial for short-term memory. It also affects neuropeptide mediation, as a result improving memory and learning processes. One interesting thing about pramiracetam is that it has higher potency than piracetam: the most common dose is only 600 Mg – 4 times smaller than that of Piracetam. Another interesting fact is that it has a very late onset of first effects: in most cases they should not be expected until 5-6 weeks into the course. In some cases Pramiracetam can also be used as an antidepressant.
Pramistar is usually prescribed to older patients and adults for the following indications:
- Symptomatic treatment of various memory disorders
- Treatment-resistant depressions
- Psychoorganic syndrome with asthenia.
- Emotional lability
- Other conditions characterised by lowered motivation
If used as a mild cognitive enhancer by otherwise healthy people Pramiracetam should be normally taken for a course of 6 to 8 weeks, with main effects starting to manifest after 5-6 weeks of supplementation. Some individuals report sudden but strong effects such as photographic memory after they take place.
One pack of Pramistar ® contains 20 pills, each containing 600 Mg of the active ingredient, which is sufficient for an average of 10 days of supplementation.
